We’re committed to helping our guests get to a better place. How do we ensure we do that? With your help, we measure, measure and measure again your experience in therapy. Evidence-based therapy is the practice of regularly checking in on how therapy is going for you, enabling your therapist to better care for your unique needs and goals. In addition to a strong connection with your therapist and consistent attendance, research shows that evidence-based care leads to better outcomes in therapy.
- We use the gold standard outcome tracking methodology for quantifying and evaluating mental health therapy progress which is founded on decades of research.
- As a standard part of ongoing care, we have you complete two brief surveys, Okay Checks, which will be emailed to you on a regular frequency between your sessions. One helps us measure how you’re doing/feeling and the other assists us in understanding your relationship with your therapist.
- We ask that you complete the checks as soon as you’re able.
- You may ask your therapist to share and discuss your responses, and your progress at any time.
- All questions are clinically-validated and commonly used in care settings.
- Your therapist may choose to use additional clinically-validated surveys, specific to your care, if appropriate.
The information collected as part of evidence-based care will be a part of your health record and will be used by your therapist to inform your care. Your information may also be used in anonymised and aggregated form to assess the quality and effectiveness of our services across the organization. If you have any concerns about completing the checks, please discuss them with your therapist.
