Project: SAMHSA Transformation Accountability (TRAC) Data Collection Instrument (OMB No. 093-0285)—Revised
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) is proposing to modify one of its current Transformation Accountability (TRAC) system data collection tools to include previously piloted recovery measures. Specifically, this revision entails the incorporation of twelve recovery measures into the current CMHS NOMs Adult Client-level Measures for Discretionary Programs Providing Direct Services data collection tool. As part of its strategic initiative to support recovery from mental health and substance use disorders, SAMHSA has been working to develop a standard measure of recovery that can be used as part of its grantee performance reporting activities.
This revision will add eight questions from the World Health Organization's (WHO) Quality of Life (QOL) to SAMHSA's existing set of Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) measures along with four additional measures that support the WHO QOL-8. Data will be collected at two time points—at client intake and at six months post-intake. These are two points in time during which SAMHSA grantees routinely collect data on the individuals participating in their programs.
The WHO QOL-8 will assess the following domains using the items listed below:
|1||How would you rate your quality of life?||Overall quality of life.|
|2||How satisfied are you with your health?||Overall quality of life.|
|3||Do you have enough energy for everyday life?||Physical health.|
|4||How satisfied are you with your ability to perform your daily living activities?||Physical health.|
|5||How satisfied are you with yourself?||Psychological.|
|6||How satisfied are you with your personal relationships?||Social relationships.|
|7||Have you enough money to meet your needs?||Environment.|
|8||How satisfied are you with the conditions of your living place?||Environment.|
The revision also includes the following recovery-related performance measures:
|9||During the past 30 days, how much have you been bothered by these psychological or emotional problems? (This question will be placed in the instrument following the K6 questions for proper sequence).|
|10||I have family or friends that are supportive of my recovery.|
|11||I generally accomplish what I set out to do.|
|12||I feel capable of managing my health care needs.|
Approval of these items by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) will allow SAMHSA to further refine the Recovery Measure developed for this project. It will also help determine whether the Recovery Measure is added to SAMHSA's set of required performance measurement tools designed to aid in tracking recovery among clients receiving services from the Agency's funded programs.
