Client Outcome Measures
For this Discussion, consider whether a client’s outcome measures can, in fact, measure the efficacy of a clinician and whether client outcome measures evaluate agency efficacy. Consult the current literature to support your response. (See attachments for articles)
With these thoughts in mind
Based upon your understanding of the validity and reliability of client outcome measures, post by Day 4 a brief explanation of whether or not client outcome measures should be used to evaluate agency efficacy effectively. Then argue whether or not the outcomes measures should be used to evaluate clinician efficacy. Finally, explain one way that you might use client outcome measures in your professional practice. Use the Learning Resources and the current literature to support your response.
Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references.
