In the OCD Institute Office of Clinical Assessment and Research, we have implemented several new data collection initiatives this year, including efforts to collect information from the family members of patients.
Earlier this year, we began contacting family members by email with a link to an online survey. The family member to whom the email is sent is designated by the patient when they discharge from the program. The goal is to get a clear picture of the experience of the family members while they support a patient admitted to the program. The survey asks the family member to rate the following:
The information will be used to guide clinical work with patients and family members, improve the education provided to family members, and work to continually improve the residential treatment experience for patients and family members.
