dc.description.abstractThis article presents the review which aims to determine the diagnostic accuracy of one or multiple FRS for diagnosing schizophrenia. Studies that consecutively enrolled or randomly selected adults and adolescents with symptoms of psychosis and assessed the diagnostic accuracy of FRS for schizophrenia compared to history and clinical examination performed by a qualified professional, which may or may not involve the use of symptom checklists or based on operational criteria such as ICD and DSM are selected. The use of FRS to diagnose schizophrenia in triage will incorrectly diagnose around 5–19 people in every 100 who have FRS as having schizophrenia and specialists will not agree with this diagnosis. Empathetic, considerate use of FRS as a diagnostic aid—with known limitations—should avoid a good proportion of these errors. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)en
