WITH Research Study

Developing Holistic Best Practice Prescribing Guidelines in MH/IDD for Healthcare Providers

 

The Center for START Services at the University of New Hampshire Institute on Disability/UCED has been awarded a grant to work in collaboration with prescribers, family members and individuals with lived experiences to develop Holistic Best Practice Prescribing Guidelines in MH/IDD for Healthcare Providers. Once completed, these guidelines will be made widely available. The Holistic Best Practice Prescribing Guidelines in MH/IDD for Healthcare Providers will include a comprehensive reference list of resources for best practices, and key information aimed toward effective, inter-disciplinary, integrated mental healthcare for people with IDD.

Participants in this study will make a major contribution to the final version of The Best Practice Guidelines in MH/IDD. You will receive the draft version of the Guidelines to use for 6 months in your daily practice. As a participant, you will: 1) Review and actively use the guidelines in your practice, and 2) Complete a survey prior to receiving the guidelines and then again at 6 months following. The survey will take about 30 minutes or less to complete. To assure confidentiality, surveys will be completed through Qualtrics and no identifying information, including IP address, will be collected. You must be 18 years or older, practice in United States, and treat people with IDD/MH to participate in this study.
