Clinical Round Table 14 - Strategies for Successful Implementation of Measurement-Based Care Implementation Across Diverse Contexts

Sunday, November 19
10:15 AM - 11:45 AM
Location: Indigo 204, Level 2, Indigo Level

Keywords: Implementation | Measurement | Evidence-Based Practice
Presentation Type: Clinical Roundtable

Scott and Lewis (2015) define Measurement-Based Care (MBC) as “systematic data collection to monitor client progress and directly inform care decisions.” Two decades of research have shown that MBC improves outcomes, shortens treatment times and helps reduce premature dropout, especially for patients not progressing as expected (Lambert et al., 2007; Shimokawa, Lambert & Smart, 2010).  SAMSHA has declared MBC an evidence-based practice (EBP) in its own right, and APA’s ABPP and DBT certification programs now require applicants to show competency in MBC. CBT therapists have embraced the value of MBC with more alacrity than clinicians of other theoretical orientations (Hatfield & Ogles, 2004) but despite the evidence, use of MBC is still far from routine. In 2015, the Kennedy Forum noted that less than 18% of psychiatrists and 11% of psychologists consistently use MBC. We posit that, like any other EBT, the gap between what the science shows and what the average clinician does must be filled by demonstrating that the EBT can be successfully implemented across diverse contexts. Measurement feedback systems (MFS) – software platforms that deliver, score and graph evidence-based assessments - have been shown to enhance the uptake of MBC.  


Panelists include an array of behavioral health specialists, all of whom have experience leading MBC implementation in a wide array of settings, ranging from Seattle Children’s Hospital, Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), and Inova Kellar Center, to training clinics at the University of Washington and George Mason University. Settings represent behavioral health inpatient, outpatient and partial hospitalization settings as well as primary care. Patients are diverse in terms of geography, diagnoses, age, gender, ethnicity and SES. Panelists will present implementation data from their sites, and discuss barriers as well as solutions. The moderators will lead a discussion on strategies for the successful implementation of MBC using an MFS, with time for questions.
