Evaluation of Recovery-Oriented Acute INpatient Mental Healthcare (RAIN-MH)
Recovery-oriented inpatient mental healthcare holds the promise of substantial benefits for Veterans, yet there have been no published empirical investigations of the implementation of this important construct. This project will examine the national rollout of recovery-oriented services on VHA inpatient mental health units and determine its impact on Veterans.
Goal Elicitation, Treatment Prioritization & Electronically – Practiced Discussion (PrEPD For Psychiatry)
Shared Decision Making (SDM) -- a process in which patients and treatment providers work collaboratively to make decisions -- is an ethical imperative and is critical for high-quality, recovery-oriented care. Yet, despite efforts to implement recovery-oriented care, people with severe mental illness (SMI) still have difficulty engaging as active partners in psychiatric treatment. The current project outlines a pilot effectiveness trial of a low-cost, high-innovation approach called GET PrEPD-Psychiatry (Goal Elicitation, Treatment Prioritization, & Electronically-Practiced Discussion).
