Establishing Measurement-Based Care in Child and Adolescent Mental Health
Presented by David Coghill, University of Melbourne
There is a significant gap between the clinical outcomes recorded in research trials compared to those seen in typical clinical practice. Measurement-based care has been flagged as one potential way to reduce this gap. In this presentation I will review the evidence for measurement-based care in child and adolescent mental health settings and illustrate with an example of measurement-based care for ADHD.
Critically review the potential benefits of integrating and implementing a measurement-based care approach to clinical care within a child and adolescent mental health setting (strategies/skills, performance, patient outcomes)
Reflect on current clinical practice within your own service/setting and contrast this to a measurement-based care approach (performance)
Identify what are the key patient outcome that are most relevant to the patients that you see and how these can best be managed (performance, patient outcomes)
