You have been assigned to write on Medical Outcome Survey as an assessment tool in psychotherapy..
I’m studying for my Health & Medical class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?
Assessment tools have two primary purposes: 1) to measure illness and diagnose clients, and 2) to measure a client’s response to treatment. Often, you will find that multiple assessment tools are designed to measure the same condition or response. Not all tools, however, are appropriate for use in all clinical situations. You must consider the strengths and weaknesses of each tool to select the appropriate assessment tool for your client. For this Discussion, as you examine the assessment tool (Medical Outcome Survey) assigned to you by the Course Instructor, consider its use in psychotherapy.
