Measurement-based care, for many busy clinicians, may sound like just another time-intensive, potentially costly venture. Or worse, they may even see it as an affront to their own clinical judgment.

But as this new, supremely practical volume reveals, the systematic collection of data is a critical component for delivering high-quality, high-value care, treatment, and services.

Written in a style accessible to professionals across the spectrum of behavioral health care and human services, this guide leverages the authors' advanced training and extensive experience in clinical psychology and program leadership to describe:

• The basic definition of measurement-based care• How to choose appropriate measures and design a methodology• How to choose psychometrically sound scales (the volume includes an easily referenced compendium of MBC scales organized by mental health concern)• How to aggregate patient data and analyze the information

By breaking measurement-based care down into steps that are easy to both understand and implement, The Clinician's Handbook on Measurement-Based Care underscores not only the benefit to patients-strengthening the therapeutic alliance, reinforcing patient progress, and improving clinical outcomes-but also its potential advantages at the practice level, including improving program fidelity, demonstrating value to third parties, and improving the overall quality and safety of services provided to all individuals serviced by the clinician or the organization.

About the Authors:

Antoinette Giedzinska, Ph.D., is director of the Research Institute at Cumberland Heights Foundation in Nashville, Tennessee. She serves as a measurement-based care advisor to national accreditation institutions and to industry startups to ensure thoughtful, ethical implementation of therapeutic progress.

Aaron R. Wilson, M.D., is chief medical officer for Sonora Behavioral Health Hospital (Acadia Healthcare) at Cornerstone Behavioral Health El Dorado, Cottonwood Tucson, and Sabino Recovery, in Tucson, Arizona.
