This study aims to investigate into the differences between the assessment results compiled by the Department of Health of Taipei City Government in 2012, and the overall well-being of the “Quality of Life” of those "schizophrenic" residents served. Individual institutes of those psychiatric residential rehabilitations displaying larger differences are further analyzed in order to understand the underlying situations and reasons to these differences.
The study subjects of this study are schizophrenic patients between the age of 18-65, who have been diagnosed by psychiatric specialists and who reside in legally incoporated psychiatric residential rehabilitations in Taipei City, which are under the supervision of the Health Bureau for assessments in 2012. These patients are conscious and mentally stable, fit for active rehabilitation and are able to communicate with the interviewer. With the assistance by caretakers in the institutions these patients are able to be interacted with the interviewer.
The study adopts the “the Taiwanese version of the Lancashire Quality of Life Profile (T-LQOLP)" questionnaire for data collection. A total of 521 questionnaires were collected where 477 valid questionnaires were obtained, generating a survey validity of 63.5%. The data collected were analyzed in terms of descriptive statistics, correlation analysis and other statistical methods. An indepth case study is further conducted focusing on 4 institutions displaying larger differences, in order to explore these differences and the factors related to how the residents’ “quality of life” is affected.
Data analysis results from the overall assessment shows that the patients/residents are "generally satisified" with their "overall well-being"; "leisure/community participation"; "religion"; "dwelling conditions, housing security"; "disease recognition" and "holistic living conditions". Meanwhile, their “own financial conditions”; “probability to be re-hospitalized”; “interaction with their own families”; “friend making” and “overall health conditions” are in between “half satisfied” and"generally satisified".
Overall, schizophrenic residents are “generally satisied” with their current quality of life living in the "Psychiatric Residential Rehabilitations”. Their level of satisfation on the overall living conditions shows a mean of 5.07 and a standard deviation of 1.26. Taking these numbers and the assssement results from the psychiatric residential rehabilitations for further case analysis, produces a correlation coefficient of .171, it indicates no strong significance. In other words there is no significant coorelation between the overall well-being satifaction gathered from the quality of life survey, and the assessments results conducted by the Department of Health.
According to the research findings, it is recommended that the setting of supervision and evaluation indicators should be take into account the practical experiences from delivering service works, as well as the actual experiences of those served. Appropriate amendments should be proposed in order to achieve the purpose of supervision and assessment and improve the quality of rehabilitation and care for psychiatric patients。
