Measures

Precision guided care provides behavioral measures for assessment of three groups: adults, children, and adult pain patients. The batteries for the groups contain two or more instruments and take only a few minutes to complete. Adult instruments are completed by the patient; child instruments by the parent, guardian, or teacher. All the instruments are psychometrically sound, provide decision support recommendations, and are used for both assessment and outcomes tracking. They are also widely used in primary care and specialty behavioral care.
