Measurement-Based Care in Mental Disorders

Measurement-Based Care in Mental Disorders

2016 | ISBN: 331946650X | English | 93 Pages | PDF | 12 MB

This innovative monograph introduces a measurement-based framework for effective treatment of patients with mood disorders, personality disorders, and schizophrenia. Rooted firmly in principles of pharmacotherapy and clinical psychometrics, the book¡¯s signature diagram balances rating scale results and patient self-reported progress along three angles: therapeutic effects, adverse effects, and quality of life. The author¡¯s choices of measures are brief, valid, widely used, and easy for clinicians to administer and patients to understand. But rather than being a mechanistic or an impersonal formula, this system is shown as a science-based means of fostering constructive collaboration between patient and therapist, leading to greater patient well-being.

Included in the coverage:

Negative mental health: the ordinary symptom-orientated mental disorders.
The basic diagram of personality dimensions.
Self-reported symptom scales within the basic diagram.
Clinician-administered symptom scales within the basic diagram.
The pharmacopsychometric triangle in measurement-based care.
Diagnostic rating scales.
A practical outcome evaluation plan.

Offering a medical level of precision to mental health, Measurement-Based Care in Mental Disorders should interest health care providers at all levels, particularly physicians and staff in primary care settings, and in psychiatric in- and outpatient clinics, including psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, and social workers.
