Development of a Quality Measure for Adults with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. II. SELECTION OF MEASURE CONCEPTS


The selection of measure concepts involved several steps: (1) conducting an environmental scan of evidence-based treatments for adults with PTSD; (2) conducting a review of existing measures of PTSD care to identify measurement gaps; and (3) convening a TAG to provide input on measure concepts and the evidence supporting those concepts. This chapter briefly describes these steps and how they influenced the development of the measure.
