Abstract:Background. In mental health care, there is much interest in Routine Outcome Monitoring (ROM). ROM is the systematic evaluation of patients reaction on treatments. ROM offers effective communication between patient and practitioner, and is determinative for positive effects of treatments (Carlier, Meuldijk, Vliet Van, Fenema Van, Wee Van der, Zitman, 2012). ROM is often used among adults, but little among children. Especially children aged 0-6 years old (infants) (Carlier et al., 2012; Carlier et al., 2010; Weiss, 1998). ROM is also little used in group treatment, and there is little use of ROM every session. Hence, there is no control on expedience of treatments, and on satisfaction of patients about their treatment. This could provoke drop-outs. Goal. To determinate the value of measuring every session, and to analyse the experiences with ROM. By means of (indirect) use of ROM-questionnaires among infants, during an parent training at Karakter. This training was meant for parents of infants with psychiatric disorders. Methods. By means of several ROM-questionnaires (Outcome rating scale, Session rating scale, Parent daily report, Opvoedingsbelastingvragenlijst en Child behavior checklist) scores were summarized. By interviewing the practitioner and the parents, opinions about ROM were determined with regards to: general judgment about between-tests and the pre/post-test, the way of filling in, the feedback (terugkoppeling), and the obligation in the future. Results. Parents who did or did not had effects of the training, scored different upon the between-measures: some parents scored low upon the between-tests, but scored normal upon the post-test and vice versa. In general parents and practitioner were positively about the use of ROM. Views upon the way of filling in differed. One was positively about the use of feedback (terugkoppelingen). Further, one was positive about obligatory use of ROM in the future. Conclusion. This pilot was innovative at the area of ROM by ROMming every session, (indirect) among infants and in an group treatment. ROM was appropriate for ROMming every session, and for ROMming among infants. ROM turned out to be less appropriate for group treatment, but with more feedback ROM could also be appropriate for this. Since the parents and the practitioner experienced the use of ROM as positive.
