Relationship of Neurocognitive Function with Psychological Well-Being and Activities of Daily Living among Patients Diagnosed with Schizophrenia in Jordan

Abstract

Background: It remains unclear how the neurocognitive impairments associated with schizophrenia may influence the psychological well-being and activities of daily living among patients with schizophrenia. Aims: The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship of neurocognitive function with psychological well-being and activities of daily living among patients diagnosed with schizophrenia in Jordan. Method: Correlational design was utilized to recruit 140 patients with schizophrenia from governmental outpatient. A structured interview was utilized to collect data on patients’ sociodemographic characteristics, neurocognitive function, psychological well-being, and activities of daily living. Results: The majority of participants (88.6%) had neurocognitive function impairments, high level of psychological well-being, and ability to perform activities of daily living independently. Neurocognitive function correlated positively with participants’ psychological well-being but not with their ability to perform activities of daily living independently. Psychological wellbeing was significantly related to participants’ neurocognitive functioning (p < 0.05). Conclusion: The study has implications for mental health providers and policymakers could use this study results to improve the treatment plans related to the activity of daily living and psychological well-being.
