Overview

Group medical appointment models (GMAM) have been found to be effective treatment models for managing the complex treatment needs of patients with chronic illnesses in primary health care settings. These models have been shown to increase consumer access to health care, improve quality of life (QOL) and increase patient and provider satisfaction with treatment, while also decreasing hospitalization rates and recidivism. The purpose of group medical appointments is to promote illness self management and to empower consumers to take control of their illness with the support of health care professionals. This retrospective descriptive correlational program evaluation assessed satisfaction with treatment services and the QOL of consumers in the Wellness Enhancement and Recovery Program (WERP). WERP utilized a GMAM, led by a psychiatric nurse practitioner, to provide comprehensive mental health treatment to persons with serious mental illnesses in a community mental health center. Outcome data collected via survey from consumers enrolled in WERP in 2006 and 2008/09 was retrospectively analyzed to assess consumer QOL and satisfaction with treatment services and with the GMAM. Demographic data and scores on QOL and overall satisfaction with treatment services were described. Overall, WERP participants were satisfied with treatment services, which included the GMAM, and have a fair to good QOL. Quality of life and satisfaction with treatment services had a positive but moderate reciprocal effect. The GMAM may be an effective treatment model to provide comprehensive quality mental health services to those with serious mental illnesses.
