Home treatment: Good successes with psychiatric diseases in children & adolescents through home trea
Austrian Institute for Health Technology Assessment (AIHTA) publishes study on international experience and provides recommendations for Austria
Many children and adolescents in Austria are mentally ill, but few are treated adequately: More than one third of 10 to 18 year olds suffer from mental illnesses at some point in their youth, but only for half of them the age-appropriate treatment capacities are available. The treatment of affected persons in their own homes by appropriately qualified persons offers a possibility to relieve treatment resources and to achieve equivalent or even better success. The Austrian Institute for Health Technology Assessment (AIHTA) has analysed the international evidence and now published the results in a recent study.
