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.
