Samenvatting

In de afgelopen tien jaar zijn in Nederland successen geboekt in het overbruggen van de kloof tussen klinisch onderzoek bij jeugdigen en de praktijk. Therapieprotocollen, onderzocht op werkzaamheid in een laboratoriumsetting, werden gedissemineerd en in toenemende mate onderzocht op effectiviteit in de reguliere klinische praktijk. Routinematig meten, met als doel het therapieproces te beïnvloeden en het evidence-based werk van de therapeuten te stimuleren, kreeg een steeds prominenter rol. In dit artikel beschrijft de auteur dat we met de momenteel beschikbare kennis nog grotere stappen kunnen maken in het verstevigen van deze brug tussen onderzoek en praktijk. Het wordt belangrijk dat zowel onderzoekers als therapeuten zich meer laten leiden door innovatieve kennis gerelateerd aan: (a) de werkingsmechanismen en moderatoren van therapieresultaten, (b) single-case experimentele designs als een alternatieve manier om onderzoek te verrichten in de klinische praktijk, en (c) het optimaliseren van metingen van het therapieproces. Een grotere interesse in deze onderwerpen zal er ook toe leiden dat het profiel van de scientist-practitioner concreter en daardoor makkelijker realiseerbaar wordt.

Bridging the gap between youth research and clinical practice

Whereto from here?

Abstract

Efforts have been made in the past decade in the Netherlands in order to bridge the gap between youth clinical practice and research laboratory. Therapy protocols shown to be efficacious in research laboratory were disseminated and increasingly investigated in regular clinical practice. Routine outcome monitoring – aimed at the optimization of the therapy process and evidence-based work of therapists – received a lot of attention. In this article, the author states that we can make even larger steps in bridging the gap between research and practice, while using existing knowledge. It is important that both researchers and therapists are more guided by innovative knowledge related to: (a) mediators and moderators of therapy outcomes, (b) single-case experimental designs as an alternative way to conduct research in the clinical practice, and (c) assessments of therapy process. Greater attention for these topics will lead to more delineated and, in turn, more feasible, scientist-practitioners’ function profiles.
