User-Centered Design for Psychosocial Intervention Development and Implementation

Metrics for perceptual implementation outcomes

Acceptability of Intervention Measure (AIM) – to be taken by Clinicians (end users) to measure how receptive they are to adopting the new intervention.

Feasibility of Intervention Measure (FIM) – to be taken by Clinicians (end users) to measure how possible and likely they are adopt the new intervention.

Intervention Appropriateness Measure (IAM) – to be taken by Clinicians (end users) to measure how suitable the intervention is for the circumstances.

Each of these measures contain 4 questions, and can all be found here.

Metrics for Patient-Reported Outcomes

Sheehan Disability Scale (SDS) – taken by patients to measure the severity of symptoms (any type) and their impact on functioning.

Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) – taken by patients to measure the severity of symptoms of specific disorders/challenges.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder-7 (GAD-7) – taken by patients to measure the severity of symptoms of specific disorders/challenges.

Metrics for Usability

System Usability Scale (SUS) – This measures how easy the intervention/system is to use and learn. Used for digital interventions (e.g. apps or computer programs).

Intervention Usability Scale (IUS) – This measures how easy the intervention/system is to use and learn. Used for interventions (e.g. therapeutic modalities).

Implementation Strategy Usability Scale – This measures how easy the intervention/system is to use and learn. Used for system-level interventions.

User Burden Scale – This measures the mental/emotional/economic challenges of using a digital tool as part of an intervention and is completed by anyone directly interacting with the tool.

Heuristic Evaluation Rubric for EBPI’s (HERE) – This multi-faceted evaluation of efficiency/quality/usability of EBPI’s involves experts in both design and the relevant subject matter (at least 2 people) filling out the rubric independently and the comparing answers and negotiating a final score together.
