Clinical Decision Support in Employee Assistance Programs: Personalizing the Therapeutic Approach

Show Summary Details

Preview

In the context of Employment Assistance Programs (EAP), personalizing treatment means distinguishing those who could benefit from psychotherapy versus medication, and using the review of neurocognitive markers to facilitate therapeutic conversations between the client and clinician, thereby building the treatment alliance. This chapter outlines this context and illustrates an exemplar to achieve this using WebNeuro as a clinical decision support tool for EAP practitioners. Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDSS) are an existing prelude to personalized medicine in clinical practice and delivery of overall healthcare programs that best match each individual.

Keywords: Employee Assistance Programs; clinical decision support; clinical; decision support system; psychotherapy versus medication; therapeutic alliance
