Q&A with Dianna
What interested you about patient reported measures research and/or projects?
“As a clinical psychologist I am passionate about integrating science and practice. Consumers are experts in their own experience and PRMs inform assessment, treatment planning, monitoring and broader service evaluation.”
What is your biggest achievement in relation to patient reported measures research, or the application of research into practice?
“The Borderline Personality Disorder Collaborative (BPD Co) established in 2019, is a state-wide service spanning both metropolitan and country settings. One of my biggest achievements has been to implement electronic PRMs collection relevant to the BPD Co model of care across South Australia.
Current research projects include a clinical trial of our 12-week therapy group program (Road Maps) and evaluation of a 10-week co-produced and co-delivered peer group program for people with a lived experience of BPD.”
How do you approach collaboration with consumers, carers and community? Or how do think we can work together to keep making advancements in this space?
“In addition to collecting PRMs, we actively seek feedback from consumers, carers, and the community across the various services we offer. This feedback is utilised to inform future service improvement initiatives.”
