Devine, Patricia; Christopherson, Eric; Bishop, Sharon; Lowery, Jacquelyn; Moore, Melody
This paper presents state-of-the-art models addressing issues related to coordination of treatment and evaluation activities, and integration of clinical, performance, and evaluation information. Specifically it provides a framework for evaluation activities to be integrated within planning, management, operation, and substance abuse treatment service delivery activities. The paper is divided into four sections. Part 1 provides a context for the placement of the self-adjusting treatment evaluation model (SATEM) concept within the evaluation framework described in the Integrated Evaluation Methods Package. Part 2 includes background information on the current role of evaluation in clinical practice and the potential benefits of strengthening that role. Part 3 describes SATEM. Part 4 describes the SATEM in relation to the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment's evaluation model. Appendix A, "Integrated Evaluation Methods Package: A Guide for Substance Abuse Treatment Knowledge-Generating Activities--Executive Summary," contains a summary description of the Integrated Evaluation Methods Package, of which this paper is one component. Appendix B is "Editor's Note." (Contains 5 figure, 3 tables, and 12 references.) (MKA)
