Early Intervention for Psychosis in Canada: CCEIP Benchmark Survey

Early intervention for psychosis programs (EIPP) have been implemented in Canada without national standards of care. Other countries have developed clinical guidelines, and literature highlights several elements considered as essential. Investigations in other countries have described slow implementation of services and the frequent absence of important components. The Canadian Consortium for Early Intervention in Psychosis was formed in 2012 : one of its objectives being the development of standards of care, better knowledge of Canadian practices was needed. An on-line benchmark survey was administered in 2013 to 11 academic FEP clinics in Canada. Questions covered administrative, clinical, education and research topics.
