LARA, Constanza et al. Comparative análisis between two instruments for clinical evaluation: OQ 45.2 and ínter. RAÍ Mental health. Rev. chil. neuro-psiquiatr. [online]. 2008, vol.46, n.3, pp.192-198. ISSN 0717-9227.

To evalúate the quality of mental health care is of fundamental importance. The ínter RAÍ Mental Health is an international instrument, created to integrally evalúate treatment. It integrates information from the cliniáan opinión and reports from other sources. This study compared the ínter RAÍ MH with OQ 45.2, designed by Lambert et al and and validated in Chile, to measure the outcomes of treatment. The sequential sample wasformed by 25 patients ofDay Hospital and 25 acute inpatients from the Psychiatric Service at Hospital del Salvador, a general public hospital in Santiago de Chile. Both instruments were applied at intake. Results, based on expertjudgment, showed that29 items ofboth instruments are refer to similar variables. On the other side, 8 ofthe 29 items have significant statistical association. This is onlyfor the items of the OQ 45.2 related to depressive and anxious sintomatology There is no association between ínter RAÍ and OQ 45.2 in items thatare refer in OQ 45.2 to social role or interpersonal relationships. It is important to have an external and more objective evaluation ofthe patients, because sometimes this enables to give a clear opinión on some disfunctional áreas. It is necessary to do further studies with a larger sample and other instruments that allows a comparison with the present results.
