Trauma Proven Outcomes
Adult partial hospitalization outcomes
From August 2016 until February 2020, 309 adults admitted to our partial hospitalization care completed measures at both admission and discharge. The mean age was 35.3 years (SD=12.5).
PTSD Symptom Checklist (Civilian) 5.0 (PCLv)
This 20-item self-report measure is used to assess the symptoms of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder in civilians. The PCLv screens patients for PTSD and also assists in monitoring symptom change during and after treatment. The goal is to decrease the severity of symptoms for those we treat.
At time of admission, individuals reported more severe PTSD symptoms, as measured by the PCLv (m= 54.5, SD=12.4); at time of discharge, individuals report reduction in their PTSD symptoms (m=36.4, SD=17.7). Utilizing paired sample t-tests, we find that these differences are statistically significant at the p< .001.
Quality of Life Enjoyment and Satisfaction Questionnaire
Posttraumatic Stress Disorder often decreases a person’s quality of life. This scale measures the overall enjoyment and satisfaction individuals experience across a number of life domains such as family relationships, work, and hobbies. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for those we treat.
Additionally, patients have statistical improvements in quality of life, measured by the Q-LES-Q-SF. Patients admitted with a poor to fair quality of life (m=41, SD=15.5), and discharged with a fair to good quality of life (m=55.1, SD=19.1). This is significant at the p<.001.
Though there is not an industry standard for interpreting score results, Rogers uses the following categories to evaluate our patients’ assessment of their quality of life:
- 80 - very good
- 64 - good
- 48 - fair
- 32 - poor
- 16 - very poor
