This innovative volume presents a cogent case for quality improvement (QI) in behavioral healthcare as ethical practice, solid science, and good business. Divided between foundational concepts, key QI tools and methods, and emerging applications, it offers guidelines for raising care standards while addressing ongoing issues of treatment validity, staffing and training, costs and funding, and integration with medical systems. Expert contributors review the implications and potential of QI in diverse areas such as treatment of entrenched mental disorders, in correctional facilities, and within the professional context of the American Psychological Association. The insights, examples, and strategies featured will increase in value as behavioral health becomes more prominent in integrated care and vital to large-scale health goals.

Included in the coverage:

Behavioral health conditions: direct treatment costs and indirect social costs.< Quality improvement and clinical psychological science.

* Process mapping to improve quality in behavioral health service delivery.

* Checklists for quality improvement and evaluation in

behavioral health.

* Creating a quality improvement system for an integrated care program: the why, what, and how to measure.

* Feedback Informed Treatment (FIT): improving the outcome of psychotherapy one person at a time.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Quality Improvement in Behavioral Health is ... a welcome and needed contribution to the QI literature that is uniquely focused on behavioral care. It will be valuable for a wide audience that includes any mental health professional or paraprofessional with systems' responsibilities, either in a leadership position or in the trenches: hospital or health center psychologists, social workers, administrators, directors of behavioral health systems, and/or any practitioners within those systems. ... I highly recommend reading this book ... ." (Anne L. Glowinski, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 62 (8), February, 2017)
