They include the DSM-III-R criteria, the most recent version of the ICD-10 research criteria, and three new sets that have been proposed as options for DSM-IV. A multicenter field trial is currently gathering data that will allow reseachers to compare the performance characteristics of each set of criteria, including dimensions such as classification rates, reliability, and user-friendliness. In this report, the rationale behind the proposed modifications and the methods and goals of the field trials are summarized.

Abstract

Abstract Five alternative sets of diagnostic criteria for schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders are presented in the appendix following this report. They include the DSM-III-R criteria, the most recent version of the ICD-10 research criteria, and three new sets that have been proposed as options for DSM-IV. A multicenter field trial is currently gathering data that will allow reseachers to compare the performance characteristics of each set of criteria, including dimensions such as classification rates, reliability, and user-friendliness. In this report, the rationale behind the proposed modifications and the methods and goals of the field trials are summarized. This content is only available as a PDF. © Oxford University Press
