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.”
