Measurement-Based Care in Mental Health Service: Improving the Quality of Care
Dr. Bruce E. WampoldSpeaker Bio
When and where
Measured-based care (MBC) involves assessing patient progress and therapy processes through the course of therapy to improve the quality of the service being delivered. This presentation will describe the components of MBC and the research that supports its effectiveness. It is clear that providing information about patient progress to the therapist improves outcomes, especially for cases that are not on track to be successful. MBC is now considered an evidence-based practice and the American Psychological Association is developing practice guidelines for its implementation. As is typical, the way in which a practice is implemented is critical to the success of the endeavor. The essential features of successful implementation of MBC are presented.
