Routine Outcome Monitoring (ROM): A great tool but people aren’t silicon!
An SPR Webinar

Presenter: Dr. Chris Evans
Wednesday, March 27, 2019, at 10 am EST

Over the last thirty years one growth area in psychotherapy research has been Routine Outcome Monitoring. For the last 20 years, our CORE system (Clinical Outcomes in Routine Evaluation, has been a no-fee option for ROM and I’ve loved getting CORE measures translated so many people can experiment with ROM in their clinical and research work. However, ROM has been used as if people were silicon chips of Read Only Memory and questionnaires were debugging code, revealing the ROM’s contents. If we can’t stop this madness, ROM will deliver little. In this webinar, I will talk first about the ethical and epistemological errors here; then about how thought about interactivity in measurements is needed; finally I’ll remind us about sample size and precision of estimation, and about unreliability of measurement. These can help us move ROM back from laboratory fantasies to useful tools for clinical work, service management and research.
