Cost-Outcome Methods for Mental Health

Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

The authors of Cost-Outcome Methods for Mental Health invite the reader to consider models for conducting treatment outcome studies more complex than traditional models generally utilized. For example, they acknowledge the plethora of research evaluating treatment efficacy within the well-controlled academic setting. However, these authors suggest that many other factors related to efficacy are in need of consideration, but are too often not formally integrated into research protocols (e.g., generalizing results to the community setting with variations in clinician expertise and populations served).
