P5 Rating ≠ 5 6 Days Ago=7 At Interview=3 8 . Six days ago patient met criteria for Extreme (7) and now meets criteria for mild (3). Incorrect: Do not average.All required elements must be present to merit a given level of severity: of facial expression “Reduced range and few expressive gestures” (1) reduced facial expression = + (2) few expressive gestures Both must be present to rate this level of severity Give the highest rating that can be justified for each item. do not average to a rating of Moderate Severe (5).

Give the highest rating that can be justified for each item. Six days ago the patient met criteria for Extreme (7) for P5(Grandiosity). Correct: Give the highest rating that applies. so they get a rating of 7. even if They only meet criteria for Mild (3) at interview. 9 . P5 Rating = 7 6 Days Ago=7 At Interview=3 #1: No PANSS items are scored by averaging – give the highest rating that applies.

you might say: “You’ve told me you hear voices sometimes. Example: Patient talks about hearing voices before being asked about them.If information has already been given earlier in the interview… phrase questions carefully in order to confirm information. Instead of later asking: “Sometimes people tell me that they can hear noises or voices inside their head that others can’t hear. Has that happened in the past week?” 13 . What about you?”.

#3: Consider all available information when rating an item. 14 . but always consider informant data for relevant items. as long as it fits the basis for rating.Look for non-verbal responses and symptoms. Listen to the patient. no matter when it occurs.
