- Addressing non-adherence to antipsychotic medication: a harm-reduction approach, M.A. Aldridge, Journal of Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing, 2011. Many people decide not to take prescribed antipsychotics once they are discharged from the hospital. Stopping antipsychotics suddenly without support may result in harmful reactions and possible re-admission to the hospital. The ‘Non-Adherence Harm Reduction’ approach aims to reduce the harm of stopping antipsychotics, by informing and supporting those who make this personal decision. This approach values personal autonomy and may reduce the likelihood of harm and readmission in those who choose not to adhere to prescribed antipsychotics.
