Measurement-based care training curriculum in psychiatry residency programs: I: Description of the curriculum and demonstration of implementation.
BACKGROUND: Recent literature shows that most practicing psychiatrists do not receive training in measurement-based care (MBC). Among the primary barriers to MBC implementation are the lack of formal training and curriculums. We present the first comprehensive MBC curriculum for use in adult psychiatric practice, and describe how the curriculum is adapted and implemented in psychiatry residency training programs.
METHODS: The Standard for Clinicians' Interview in Psychiatry (SCIP) was developed as a measurement-based care tool for clinicians' use. The SCIP is the only instrument that includes 18 reliable and validated clinician-rated scales covering most adult psychiatric disorders. The SCIP has simple, unified rules of measurement that apply to the 18 scales. The MBC curriculum includes 2 instruction manuals, 4 didactic lectures, and 12 videotaped interviews. We describe the annual learning and implementation of MBC curriculum in residency programs.
RESULTS: The curriculum implementation at West Virginia University and Delaware Psychiatric Center began in 2019 and is ongoing. We present 3 case demonstrations of the implementation of MBC in clinical settings.
CONCLUSIONS: Comprehensive implementation of MBC curriculum in residency programs has the potential to facilitate research and create a "culture" of MBC in future generations of psychiatrists.
