How to use Norse Feedback?
It is preferable that you use Norse Feedback before every session, or once a week if you receive treatment more frequently. Because you can give the feedback on-line, you can decide when you would like to give it, as long as it is before your appointment(s). As soon as you have completed the feedback form, your therapist will receive a visual report of your responses and determine what to focus on in therapy. Your therapist will go over your results before the session, and give you an opportunity to help them fully understand your report from your perspective. With Norse Feedback you get the possibility to tell how you feel, every week.
Questions and answers
My therapist has asked me to fill out Norse Feedback. What is this?
Norse is a clinical feedback tool that asks questions that are relevant to mental health care. This includes questions about your treatment preferences, your symptoms and challenges, as well as your strengths and resources. Based on the feedback you give, your therapist receives a report, which shows a visual representation of your areas of difficulty and strength. Together with your therapist, you can use Norse to get a better understanding of your difficulties and help to customize the further treatment.
Is it safe?
Yes. Norse Feedback has the same security as your health record.
Do I have to use Norse?
It is voluntary to use Norse. Research shows that the use of clinical feedback systems can enhance the effectiveness of therapy and at the same time gives you a way of communicating important information to your provider.
Why do I get questions that are not relevant for me?
The first time you fill out the assessment, you must answer all the questions so it can evaluate which ones are relevant for you. From the second time on, only clinically relevant questions are asked, along with a few extras to ensure that if new problems crop up, Norse will identify and ask you about them.
I am at an in-patient psychiatric clinic. Should I also use Norse here?
If you are in an in-patient care that offers Norse, you are encouraged to use this when you are there.
