The "Remission Project" proposed the concept of symptom remission to the community of Italian psychiatrists to test the degree of its acceptance and to edit a National consensus document on the concept's validity and criteria in the Italian clinical context. During some meetings, the scientific Committee addressed the project's teaching material (literature review, handbook for working remission criteria, a DVD containing six clinical interviews aimed at assessing remission criteria) (Table I). During a first stage, such material has been discussed and shared with other 54 psychiatrists and, at a second stage, presented by these psychiatrists to more than 500 Italian psychiatrists in 20 different locations widely distributed in the national territory (Table II). The "Remission Project" represented an initiative of great impact at the teaching level, showing the need for continuous updating of the italian scientific community on issues that would have important research and clinical implications. Participants' attitudes were characterised by attention focused on the proposed contents, active participation in discussion, and critical, constructive observations (Tables III, IV). Update programmes focused on symptom remission, and social and cognitive functioning, could represent the ideal continuation of the initiative.
