Routine outcome monitoring bij het centrum integrale psychiatrie : een analyse. Onderzoek naar behandeleffecten en patiënttevredenheid en de invloed van patiënt specifieke factoren daarop.

(2016) Padje, F. (Foske)

Routine Outcome Monitoring (ROM) is obligatory in mental healthcare. ROM consists of a set of questionnaires which patients fill in during their treatment. ROM has several functions in the individual treatment of patients, for analysing policies, for research and for benchmarking (Nugter et al 2012, Laane et al 2012, Noom et al 2012).
The current rapport presents research with ROM-data from the Centrum for Integrative Psychiatry (CIP). At the CIP a holistic way of treatment is being used, where there is room for complementary treatments with a scientifically proven effectivity next to the regular treatment (Hoenders et al 2012).
In this research the patient population and treatment effectivity of the CIP are being analysed, and patient specific influences and the influence of patient satisfaction on the treatment results is also analysed. The research is based on the ROM-data from patients treated between 2012 and 2015.
The results show a positive treatment effect on all used outcome measurements. Women improved more on the symptom severity. A possible explanation is that women report a higher symptom severity at the beginning of the treatment (Van Noorden et al 2010, Kornstein et al 2000). Global Assessment of Functioning (GAF) shows weak or no correlations with several outcome measurements. While GAF is considered to be an objective and reliable instrument, this may not be the case (Urbanoski et al 2014).
Patients are satisfied with the CIP. The more satisfied the patient, the better the treatment outcome. In general, there is a decrease of symptoms and an increase in quality of life after treatment at the CIP.
