S-CGI (Sheehan – Clinician Global Improvement Scale) & S-PGI (Sheehan – Patient Global Improvement Scale)

The Sheehan – Global Improvement Scales are designed to provide an overall assessment of how much a patient’s symptoms and behaviors have improved or worsened since the start of treatment. They are very sensitive in detecting change over time.  There are 2 Sheehan – Global Improvement Scales, a clinician-rated version (S-CGI) and a patient-rated version (S-PGI).  These 21-point global improvement scales were designed as more sensitive outcome measures than the old standard 7-point CGI-I Scale (Clinician Global Impressions – Improvement) and the related 7 point PGI-I (Patient Global Impressions – Improvement).
