Abstract

Objective: Neurocognitive deficits are a core symptom domain of schizophrenia, occurring in 75–90% of people with this diagnosis and influencing long term functional outcomes. This article aims to describe the pilot implementation of cognitive remediation therapy in two large public mental health services and detail changes made to the delivery of this therapy after this trial.

Conclusions: Cognitive remediation therapy provides an evidence-based approach to targeting cognitive deficits but the translation of this therapy from a research setting to clinical practice has not been well evaluated.
