A recent expert panel has proposed consensus criteria for remission in
schizophrenia. They distinguished remission from recovery, noting that the
latter outcome was likely to require not only remission of symptoms, but also
improvement in cognitive and psychosocial functioning. The panel deferred the
task of establishing operational criteria for recovery since there was
insufficient research on the topic. This article provides a summary of this
still "uncharted" aspect of treatment.
