Abstract

Describe primary adherence and medication persistence to second generation long-acting injectable (LAI) antipsychotics following an inpatient psychiatry hospitalization, compare rates of psychiatric-related hospital readmissions and emergency visits within 6 months of discharge between patients who were adherent versus nonadherent, and explore predictors of primary adherence to second generation LAI antipsychotics following hospitalization.
