The most effective mental health services are a blend of science and art. Evidence-based assessment tools and psychotherapeutic interventions are foundational to achieving patient outcomes, but require clinical skill for selection, application, and adaptation to ensure personalized care. Unfortunately, research has demonstrated that our clinical judgment alone is insufficient to monitor patient progress and adjust treatment accordingly. Measurement-based care (MBC) is the routine use of patient-reported progress measures throughout treatment to guide collaborative decisions about treatment. This lecture will provide foundational information about what MBC is and how it can be feasibly integrated into mental health services to optimize patient engagement, goal attainment and treatment outcomes. Practical resources and tools in the public domain will be shared as well as implementation considerations across various settings and patient populations.

Target Audience

This activity is intended for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counselors and other mental health professionals. 

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, attendees will be able to:

  1. Define measurement-based care and list at least 2 reasons why it is important for high quality care
  2. Explain common barriers and implementation solutions to integrating measurement-based care in practice
  3. Identify resources and tools to support measurement-based care practice
