Course Abstract:

There is great variability in treatment outcomes for addiction and mental health patients. To optimize treatment outcomes for these patients, the clinicians must first have a clear understanding of patients’ psychopathology and individual needs and be able to objectively assess and monitor their clinical progress during treatment. In this presentation, Dr. Kumari will discuss the national rollout and benefits of Sovereign’s measurement-based care program adopted to fully assess and improve behavioral health treatment outcomes.

Course Objectives:

At the end of the workshop, the attendees will be able to

  • Discuss the need for objective assessments of patients’ psychopathology and individual needs

  • Describe how to monitor addiction and mental health treatment outcomes

  • Plan assessment of psychopathology and monitoring clinical progress in behavioral healthcare setting using Sovereign’s COMPASS and other recently developed tools
