BT12 Workshop 11 REACH Pushing your Clinical Effectiveness to the Next Level – Scott Miller, PhD
The field of therapy is undergoing a period of dramatic change: regulatory and documentation requirements, government cutbacks and changing insurance policies, declining incomes and economic uncertainty. Thankfully, a simple, evidence-based alternative exists for maximizing the effectiveness and efficiency of treatment based on using ongoing client feedback to empirically tailor services to the individual client needs and characteristics. Over a dozen randomized clinical trials, involving a wide range of clients and presenting complaints, document that the principles and practices associated with Feedback Informed Treatment (FIT) improve outcomes and client satisfaction by as much as 65%, cuts dropout rates in half, and decreases the risk of deterioration by one third. FIT does not require a great deal of time and can be incorporated into any therapeutic approach or treatment setting. Many clinicians and agencies around the world are using the data generated by FIT to provide evidence of effectiveness and accountability to regulatory bodies, payers, and funders.
