Objective To explore the compliance and factors affecting it in the treatment of outpatients with schizophrenia. Methods The compliance of 718 cases of schizophrenia were evaluated and their social, economical, familiar, clinical and therapeutical data were collected by comprehensive interview. Single factor analysis and multiple regression analysis were calculated to indicate the relationship between compliance and possible correlated factors. Results Among enrolled cases, 52.8% were fully compliant, 34.7% partially compliant and 12.5% noncompliant. Based on multiple regression analysis, it was found that the most important factors affecting compliance were side effect of drugs, illness state and availability of psychiatric service. Conclusions It is very important to pay more attention to the therapeutic compliance of schizophrenic patients.
