to take injections and stigma. With GAIN, we now have an effective tool to use in approaching a recommendation and have the possibility to help more patients with schizophrenia as we work together to control their symptoms."

Risperidone long-acting therapy (RLAT, or RISPERDAL CONSTA), for the treatment of symptoms of schizophrenia, is one of several long-acting injectable products available. RISPERDAL CONSTA is the only long-acting injectable form of a class of newer medicines known as atypical antipsychotics approved in the U.S. RISPERDAL CONSTA is a proven medicine with an innovative delivery system that allows it to be given every two weeks. RISPERDAL CONSTA can help reduce the symptoms that are part of schizophrenia. A number of new atypical antipsychotic LAT formulations are also expected to be available in the future, which provided further rationale for the development of GAIN.

The Schizophrenia Treatment Acceptance Response Trial (START), an initial application of the GAIN approach, evaluated acceptance of RLAT versus approach as usual. Clinicians who used GAIN found it easy to implement and almost all indicated that they would use this tool with their current and future patients.5 Rates of patient acceptance and adherence to treatment were high for both arms (and indistinguishable), which was attributed to the positive effects of more frequent contact between patients and treatment teams than is typical. Further evaluation of the efficacy of GAIN in other clinical settings is needed to understand the full utility of the tool.
