Abstract

The present study was planned to evaluate the level of expressed emotion (EE), depression and caregiver burden in wives of veterans admitted in Ibn-e-Sina psychiatric hospital and determine the relationship with number of readmissions in 6-month follow up. Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was performed on 50 veterans hospitalized in Ibn-e-Sina psychiatric hospital and their wives in 2008. Psychiatric disorders had been diagnosed based on semi structural clinical interview and DSM-IV-TR diagnostic criteria and the severity of illnesses was assessed with clinical global impression scale (CGI-S). Beck depression inventory (BDI), family burden interview scale (FBIS) and the level of expressed emotion (LEE) tests were performed for wives. The number of readmission of veterans was assessed 6 months later. Data were analyzed by Pearson correlation, Mann-Whitney and ANOVA tests. Results: It was shown that42 of wives had mild depression, 26 had moderate depression and 8 had severe depression. Also 52 of them were suffering from severe caregiver burden and 14 had high EE. Veterans' average number of readmission in 6 months follow up was 1.6±1.28. The average of FBIS scores in wives was 31±10.49. There was no significant relationship between average of LEE (P=0.67), BDI (P=0.19) and FBIS (P=0.92) scores and LEE subsets in wives with the number of veterans' readmissions. Conclusion: The level of expressed emotion, depression and caregiver burden in wives are not related with the number of readmission in veterans admitted in psychiatric hospital in Iran.  Â
