Using Outcome Monitoring Feedback To Improve Clinical Practice (1.5 CE's)

4/24/2014 3:00:00 PM

Kim de Jong, Ph.D.

Research shows that in clinical practice, only half of the patients improve clinically significantly. Outcome monitoring (OM) has shown to be a method that can help improve outcomes in clinical practice. However, many clinicians are reluctant to use OM and have negative attitudes towards using it, despite the fact that this may not be in their patients’ best interest.  During this webinar, we will talk about what outcome monitoring entails, what the working mechanisms are and what challenges a clinician faces when participating in outcome monitoring. Research, theory and experience from clinical practice will be combined to provide a wide view on outcome monitoring and how to use it to improve clinical practice.
