Online Intake Informed Consent & Clinical Measures in Private Practice MEL

Online Intake Informed Consent & Clinical Measures in Private Practice MEL



About this Event




Sponsored by Neuro Balance.


Measures provide clinicians with the information they require to support the development of management/care plans, as well as the monitoring, review and evaluation of that care.


Measuring the health outcomes of consumers in mental health services is critical to ensure that every consumer continually benefits from the treatment and care they receive.


The systematic evaluation of outcome is becoming increasingly more routine in the provision of mental health and therapeutic services. Policy makers, third-party payers, government agencies, and consumers are concerned that limited health care dollars be spent on treatments that work. While therapists may feel singled out in this process, observers of Journal of Brief Therapy Volume 2, Number 2 • Spring/Summer 2003 JBT 2(2) pp. 91-100 2/3/04 10:51 AM Page 91 note that interest in outcome is not specific to mental health, but rather is part of a worldwide trend (Andrews, 1995; Humphreys, 1996; Lambert, Okiishi, Finch, & Johnson, 1998; Sanderson, Riley, & Eshun, 1997).


Patient-reported outcome (PRO) is an "umbrella term" that covers a whole range of potential types of measurement but it is used specifically to refer to all measures quantifying the state of health through the evaluation of outcomes reported by the patient himself/herself.


Specifically measures provide clinicians with the information they require to support the development of management/care plans, as well as the monitoring, review and evaluation of that care.


Measuring the health outcomes of consumers in mental health services is critical to ensure that every consumer continually benefits from the treatment and care they receive.


Experience shows that no single measurement scale offers an accurate overall picture of a person’s mental health, and the use of a ‘suite’ of measures can help to overcome the limitations of individual measures.


This workshop will introduce you to commonly used measures:



  • DASS - Depression, Anxiety, Stress Scale

  • ORS - Outcome Rating Scale

  • SRS - Session Rating Scale

  • HHH - Helplessness, Hopelessness and Haplessness Scale

  • Luscher Colour Diagnostic (introduction)


You will learn:



  • Specifically what each of the measures are designed to assess

  • How to deliver each of the measures

  • How to score the individual measures

  • What the "norms" are for each measure

  • How to interpret the outcomes

  • What the outcomes mean in terms of client/patient support and intervention


You will receive:



  • A PDF of the reproducable pages containing each of the measures

  • The scoring sheets for each of the measures


At the end of the PD event, you will have the opportunity to learn more about:
