Supporting Consumer Engagement Through Outcomes Self-Report: A Case Study of MTM’s New DLA-20 Self Report Tool
Consumer engagement can make or break even the best treatment plan. Research has shown that an early focus on engaging and empowering consumers in their own treatment is effective at changing health behavior across all populations. For 20 years, the Daily Living Activities–20 (DLA-20) has enabled clinicians to measure the everyday parts of life impacted by mental illness or disability and, in turn, support the functional assessment data needs of service providers. But outcomes measurement and monitoring tools that only capture a clinician’s point of view potentially miss valuable information and opportunities for consumer engagement.
Beginning in April, providers using the DLA-20 can use an important new tool to enrich their measurement and assessment efforts while increasing consumer engagement in the treatment process. On April 11th at 3:30 PM ET, join MTM’s Senior DLA and Process Change expert Annie Jensen, LCSW and Ralph May, Psy.D., Chief Clinical Officer at Community Guidance Center, who pilot tested the Self Report, to get answers to your questions and hear about real-life implementation of the new Self Report tool.
