Questionnaire options

The most popular option is to utilize one of the questionnaire versions developed by the ACORN collaboration. The questionnaires were developed using state of the art methodology, and possess excellent psychometic properties, while remaining relatively brief and cost effective for routine use.

The versions that exist can be clustered into these primary categories. The Demo forms included can be completed on any browser enabled device. Paper versions are also available. Completed forms can be viewed using the Demo Toolkit Account login. Allow 15- 30 minutes for questionnaires to be scored and displayed in the Toolkit.

Other options for questionnaires

Some organizations choose other questionnaires. The ACORN toolkit was designed to permit the use of any questionnaire with adequate normative information. For example, organizations may choose to use the PHQ9 for depression or the GAD7 for anxiety. It is important to bear in mind that these questionnaires were designed as diagnostic screening questionnaires, not measures of outcome. While neither possess psychometric properties that make them ideal as outcome measures, they are sometimes more acceptable because of their name recognition. The ACORN collaboration database contains one the largest normative samples for PHQ9 and GAD7 questionnaires in the world.

Organizations wishing to use questionnaires that are not currently part of the suite of questionnaires available through ACORN can do so by contacting the ACORN data center and making arrangements for custom development of questionnaires forms and associated reporting of outcomes.
