To investigate predictors for competitive employment in a three-year follow-up study of discharged schizophrenia patients. The nationally representative sample comprised 2168 schizophrenia patients aged 15-64 years, who had been discharged from psychiatric hospitals in 1986, 1990, and 1994 in Finland. Comprehensive data were collected from psychiatric case records on the patients' sociodemographic and clinical characteristics at discharge and use of services during the follow-up period. The patients were interviewed 3 years after discharge using a structured interview schedule, which included questions on employment. At follow-up, the competitive employment rate declined among the three cohorts (1989: 7.4%, 1993: 2.6% and 1997: 1.5%), whereas the rate of non-competitive employment remained at the same level (8.4%, 7.2% and 9.6%). The probability of competitive employment was higher for those who, at the time of discharge, were not on disability pension and had a current or past history of marriage, and had been discharged in the late 1980s. The probability of being competitively employed was lower for those who had no occupation at discharge and for those who had spent more time in hospital care during the three years after dis...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.

Artificial Intelligence in Cardiac Imaging

Artificial intelligence (ai) techniques are increasingly applied to cardiovascular (cv) medicine in cardiac imaging analysis. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Social Learning

Social learning involves learning new behaviors through observation, imitation and modeling. Follow this feed to stay up to date on the latest research.

Cell Atlas of the Human Eye

Constructing a cell atlas of the human eye will require transcriptomic and histologic analysis over the lifespan. This understanding will aid in the study of development and disease. Find the latest research pertaining to the Cell Atlas of the Human Eye here.

Single Cell Chromatin Profiling

Techniques like ATAC-seq and CUT&Tag have the potential to allow single cell profiling of chromatin accessibility, histones, and TFs. This will provide novel insight into cellular heterogeneity and cell states. Discover the latest research on single cell chromatin profiling here.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells.
