Cognitive remediation interventions are effective in patients with schizophrenia, but the durability of their effects is still under debate. This study aimed to investigate the 1-year persistence of the effectiveness of cognitive remediation.Patients with schizophrenia treated with cognitive remediation or usual rehabilitation were reassessed with clinical, neuropsychological and functional measures 1year after cognitive remediation.At the 1-year follow-up, the advantages of cognitive remediation remained significant for clinical variables and specific cognitive domains.

Abstract

Cognitive remediation interventions are effective in patients with schizophrenia, but the durability of their effects is still under debate. This study aimed to investigate the 1-year persistence of the effectiveness of cognitive remediation.Patients with schizophrenia treated with cognitive remediation or usual rehabilitation were reassessed with clinical, neuropsychological and functional measures 1year after cognitive remediation.At the 1-year follow-up, the advantages of cognitive remediation remained significant for clinical variables and specific cognitive domains. Functional measures showed increasing improvement at follow-up.The study suggests that the effectiveness of cognitive remediation in schizophrenia persists after 1year.
