| February 8, 2013
Feedback Informed Treatment EBP, Evidence based practice

Feedback Informed Treatment has now become Feedback Informed Treatment EBP!

FIT been added to SAMSHA's official database of evidence-based practices. SAMSHA's National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP) is a searchable online registry of mental health and substance abuse interventions that have been reviewed and rated by independent reviewers. The purpose of this registry is to assist the public in identifying scientifically based approaches to preventing and treating mental and/or substance use disorders that can be readily disseminated to the field.

Most notably FIT received a prefect score in the “Readiness for Dissemination” category. This is due in part to the recent release of the FIT Manuals, but also noted was the thriving professional community of the International Center for Clinical Excellence.

Here is a direct quote from Dissemination Strengths:
“ICCE, an initiative to integrate PCOMS into clinical practice through FIT, has an array of comprehensive, well-organized, and high-quality materials to support the implementation of PCOMS. The steps for successful implementation are clear and accompanied by tools and guidance to support the entire process, from the determination of organizational readiness through evaluation. Key intervention tools are easily accessible through the program Web site. Training manuals address core clinical competencies and assist clinicians in using the intervention. Many training and consultation opportunities are available to support all stages of the implementation process, and the process for accessing these services is clear. A Web forum provides clinicians with opportunities to share program news and discuss successes and obstacles. Cost and staff burden are considered to encourage the use of quality assurance materials and procedures. Along with the ORS and SRS for outcome monitoring, client process monitoring tools and fidelity checklists are provided to support quality assurance. Measures are accompanied by clear guidance for administration and use.”
