Panel #2 Video Q&A: MBC With the Experts at the YMBCC

Video Q&A with the MBC Experts at the YMBCC

One of our main goals at Greenspace is to offer clinicians and clinical leaders opportunities to further their overall knowledge of Measurement-Based Care (MBC) to help increase its adoption across the mental health industry.

Our partnership with the Yale Measurement-Based Care Collaborative has been an important part of these efforts. In a three-part series with the Collaborative, we set out to cover the basics of Measurement-Based Care, the research behind it, and the impact it’s having across various clinical settings. During these events, the panelists shared so many valuable insights and examples of effective MBC from both the research and their own clinical experience. In an effort to make these learning accessible for any clinician, clinical leader, or organization who wishes to deepen their understanding of MBC and implement it into their own practice, we have continued to share key moments from these panels.

This video Q&A highlights some of the important questions and answers that came up during our second event The Collect, Share, Act Model of Measurement-Based Care: A Conversation With the Experts at Yale.
