Psyche Schizophrenia Prognostic Factors

In CK exam and perhaps even in Step 1 the boards sometimes like to ask about the prognosis of schizophrenia.

It's a good idea to have a good grasp of these

Here's a table for you

Default some confusion

i think family history and mood disorder parts are the other way around.

positive FH and positive history of mood disorder are bad prognosis and vice versa.

Thank you for noticing that. I made the correction regarding the effect of family history.
With regard to mood disorder, I checked several references including DSM IV and they all said schizo-affective disorders have better prognosis than schizophrenia.
