Improving metabolic monitoring rate for young people aged 35 and younger taking antipsychotic medications to treat a psychosis: A literature review
MetadataShow full item record
© 2017 Elsevier Inc. Young people aged 35 and younger who are taking antipsychotic medications to treat a psychosis are a high risk for developing metabolic syndrome due to the adverse effects of the medications. This paper reports the finding of a review of literature to identify interventions to improve metabolic monitoring rates in this group. A review of 478 studies identified 15 articles which met the inclusion criteria. Five articles reported single-intervention studies and the remaining integrated two or more interventions to improve uptake level of metabolic monitoring. As metabolic syndrome can be detected early through metabolic monitoring in young people taking antipsychotics, early intervention is important to improve their physical health trajectory.
