Abstract

Two scales developed in Great Britain, the QOL Profile and the General Satisfaction Questionnaire, were used to examine the relationship between type of case management services and quality of life and satisfaction with treatment of 68 long-term psychiatric patients in Colorado. Factor analysis identified three types of case management activities that tended to occur together: assertive outreach (direct help, out-of-office visits, and monitoring), brokerage (referral to other agencies), and counseling and assessment. Monitoring was the only variable positively associated with quality of life for all patients; brokerage was the only variable negatively associated with acceptability of services. The number of case management contacts was negativtly associated with treatment satisfaction.
