Abstract

The ANPA Committee on Research conducted a survey of its members and those of the British Neuropsychiatry Association to determine the extent to which neuropsychiatrists employ formal measures of clinical outcome. Results revealed that although respondents endorsed the practice of outcome assessment, formal diagnostic evaluations and outcome measures were rarely applied consistently to the broad range of neuropsychiatric conditions encountered clinically. These findings have implications for clinical research and managed cave in neuropsychiatry and will form the basis for future work by the Committee on Research.
