ABA Outcomes Framework Part II
Presented by Dr. David Cox
Transparency and accountability around patient outcomes requires that practitioners take a uniform approach to assessing treatment outcomes. Reporting on quality outcomes is rapidly becoming the norm and expected by healthcare patients worldwide. For behavior analysts, this increased attention on treatment outcomes calls for practitioners to demonstrate that their treatments work and to become more accountable for the costs of treatment. A previous webinar by Dr. Ellie Kazemi focused on a systematic approach to selecting instruments to assess and plan treatment for individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). But, it’s one thing to conduct assessments, and another thing entirely to do something with the resulting data. In this webinar, Dr. Cox highlights considerations and planning activities that practitioners should be aware of so that they can efficiently store, manage, analyze, and communicate patient outcomes to relevant stakeholders.
