Introduction

Introduction Scott C. Clark, M.D., and John M. Oldham, M.D. The New York State Office of Mental Health hosted the Ninth Annual Research Conference in early December, 1996. This con- ference, which has become a focal point for many individuals working to help those with mental disabilities in New York, seeks to bridge the clinical and research communities so richly repre- sented in the state. The three day meeting brings together re- searchers, clinicians, administrators and members of the community for a lively program of oral and poster presentations, workshops, and an interactive satellite session. With the objective of bringing new findings of practical significance to clinicians, presentations span a broad gamut of topics, and reflect the di- versity of current research in the field. This special issue of the Psychiatric Quarterly includes six papers chosen from the more than 80 oral presentations given at the conference. In the first paper, Dr. Lloyd Sederer and colleagues at the McLean Hospital in Boston survey some of the pertinent ques- tions that arise when outcomes are made a focus of assessment in clinical practice, and detail some of the measures used in their hospital for this purpose.

Abstract

Scott C. Clark, M.D., and John M. Oldham, M.D. The New York State Office of Mental Health hosted the Ninth Annual Research Conference in early December, 1996. This con- ference, which has become a focal point for many individuals working to help those with mental disabilities in New York, seeks to bridge the clinical and research communities so richly repre- sented in the state. The three day meeting brings together re- searchers, clinicians, administrators and members of the community for a lively program of oral and poster presentations, workshops, and an interactive satellite session. With the objective of bringing new findings of practical significance to clinicians, presentations span a broad gamut of topics, and reflect the di- versity of current research in the field. This special issue of the Psychiatric Quarterly includes six papers chosen from the more than 80 oral presentations given at the conference. In the first paper, Dr. Lloyd Sederer and colleagues at the McLean Hospital in Boston survey some of the pertinent ques- tions that arise when outcomes are made a focus of assessment in clinical practice, and detail some of the measures used in their hospital for this purpose.
