The treatment of schizophrenic disorders includes multiple interventions that must be inte-grated with each other for the complete management of the patient. Among the interventions of an educational and psychosocial nature we find the improvement of self-care behaviors. From the literature, it is clear that self-care has a positive impact on health and psychosocial out-comes of patients with chronic diseases and its studies is emerging in different realities that deal with patients with schizophrenia, even if the concrete effectiveness of self-care in this pathology remains uncertain and the literature in this regard is fragmented and devoid of an over-all vision. Consequently, this study aims to provide a critical synthesis of the available scien-tific evidence regarding self-care behaviors performed by patients diagnosed with schizophre-nia. Through a review of the literature, the 231 results obtained were examined and 7 articles were selected through the application of the inclusion criteria. Three macro-themes have been identified: (a) the levels of self-care implemented by patients with schizophrenia; (b) the factors influencing this process; (c) educational interventions that have been shown to have an effect and efficacy for developing self-care behaviors. Self-care in the patient suffering from schizophrenia is a fundamental therapeutic tool, however it needs to be deepened with new primary studies, in order to provide a clear vision on the methods of intervention to satisfy the patient’s needs, thus limiting the complications related to the disease and giving these people back a satisfactory quality of life.
