USING EMPIRICAL AND EVIDENCE-BASED FINDINGS…
… TO ACHIEVE BETTER TREATMENT OUTCOMES WITH LIMITED RESOURCES
Gerald Shulman reveals how to apply knowledge from evidence-based and empirical sources to improve treatment outcomes, often at little or no extra cost. Expand levels of care, provide more individualised treatment, explore continuing care, case-mix concerns, length of service and outcomes for various subpopulations, and different treatment models for patients with different severities of mental-health disorders.
