Treatment Documentation Sheet (TDS)

The Treatment Documentation Sheet (TDS-EPOS, Patterson P, Birchwood M, Skeate A; Birmingham: University of Birmingham, 2002) is an interview especially developed by EPOS for documenting in detail all contacts with health care agencies related to mental health problems, i.e. hours of psychological intervention, number of contacts with health care professionals, dosage of psychopharmacological treatments etc.

The TDS has been developed on the basis of a systematic review of literature and collection of treatment settings, modalities and interventions available in the participating regions (Finland, Germany, Spain, The Netherlands, UK). Thus, the TDS allows for the fast and comprehensive collection of treatment data in psychiatric samples, especially in psychosis research.

Potential end-users are psychiatric, psychological or public health investigators engaged in psychosis research. As the main benefit, the Treatment Documentation Sheet provides a concise and time-efficient assessment of treatments, and clients compliance and appraisals in naturalistic studies.
