Recovery from schizophrenia: developing context utilising the literature
TLDR
An agreed definition of recovery cannot be established, but differing perspectives need to be appreciated and considered if recovery is to be successfully achieved.
Subjective Recovery in Patients with Schizophrenia and Related Factors

The concepts of remission and recovery in schizophrenia
TLDR
The RSWG remission criteria are easy to apply and define an achievable and desirable treatment goal, but measures of social and occupational functional outcome, quality of life and cognitive status need to be further developed and standardized before remission and recovery criteria can be more broadly defined.
Hearing their voices : the lived experience of recovery from first-episode psychosis in schizophrenia
TLDR
It was found that support and its natural corollary, having to care for another, are possibly the greatest contributors to the recovery of persons faced with mental illness, and the value of the narrative in the process of recovery is found.
Measuring psychosocial outcomes in schizophrenia patients
TLDR
It is argued that assessment of psychosocial functioning should be an integral part of schizophrenia patients' assessment, in both the research and clinical setting, and there exists no gold standard measure.
Redefining outcome measures in schizophrenia: integrating social and clinical parameters
TLDR
It is argued that the outcome measures should be multidimensional and consist of at least two parameters: clinical remission and social outcome and the concept of recovery be carefully defined and the gold standard of outcome should incorporate social and clinical parameters.

The concepts of remission and recovery in schizophrenia

The RSWG remission criteria are easy to apply and define an achievable and desirable treatment goal, but measures of social and occupational functional outcome, quality of life and cognitive status need to be further developed and standardized before remission and recovery criteria can be more broadly defined.
Pathways between internalized stigma and outcomes related to recovery in schizophrenia spectrum disorders.
TLDR
Findings from two models supported the hypothesis that internalized stigma affects hope and self-esteem, leading to negative outcomes related to recovery and it is recommended that interventions be developed and tested to address the important effects ofinternalized stigma on recovery.
Remission in schizophrenia: proposed criteria and rationale for consensus.
TLDR
The first consensus-based operational criteria for symptomatic remission in schizophrenia are based on distinct thresholds for reaching and maintaining improvement, as opposed to change criteria, allowing for alignment with traditional concepts of remission in both psychiatric and nonpsychiatric illness.

TLDR
Outcomes strongly favored the experimental groups in terms of the percentage of participants who worked at any point during the studies, and this effect size may be a useful benchmark for future trials.

The concepts of remission and recovery in schizophrenia.
TLDR
Examination of the past and current research into the concepts of remission and recovery in schizophrenia finds factors such as symptom control and remission, and functional aspects of recovery such as improvements in cognition and social functioning, which are quantifiable, should be used as measures of treatment outcome and markers of recovery.
