Effectiveness & Satisfaction

Yes We Can Youth Clinics believes it is important to monitor our treatment effect. We do this by means of Routine Outcome Measurement (ROM) procedures. People fill out the questionnaires before and after treatment, so we can monitor any improvements made in between. Encrypted data are forwarded to national independent institutions, where results are benchmarked with others in the same industry.

We use the CAMHS Youth Thermometer for young people under the age of 18 and for 18+ we use the short version of the CQC-index. These monitoring instruments have nationwide acclaim. Monitoring takes place at the end of the treatment.
