Monitoring and measurement in child and adolescent mental health: it’s about more than just symptomsDownload the open access paper
Evidence suggests that clinicians are less accurately able to predict patient outcomes using clinical judgement alone, particularly when a patient is veering off a projected track of progress. It is also important to consider the differences between the use of measures and the use of measures with feedback: of incorporating discussion about the measurement questions, and areas of tracking focus, into the work with young people, and families/carers, as relevant.

Developing typologies in qualitative research: the use of ideal-type analysisDownload the open access paper
Ideal-type analysis is a relatively new addition to the family of qualitative research methods, which offers a systematic, rigorous method for constructing typologies from qualitative data. This article is a summary of our approach to conducting ideal-type analysis. We hope that this article will help researchers to consider whether using ideal-type analysis may be a suitable approach for their own studies. Authors: Stapley, E., O'Keefe, S. & Midgley, N. (2022).
