Chapter 10 discusses the increased demand on all disciplines for provision of evidence-based (or supported) treatment, and the empirical evidence for the efficacy and cost-efficiency of their work; RPs have needed to demonstrate 'change' in treated patients through measurement of functional outcome, and assessment and measurement of function with attention to the ecological validity of the process. Many Rehabilitation Psychologists and rehabilitation facilities have become accustomed to the requirement that they demonstrate improved outcomes in order to be paid for services. Paid-for services are often recommended following formal assessment using measures that may be repeated (or similar, equivalent measures may be used) to assess progress and/or outcomes, and RPs must demonstrate improved outcomes in exchange for this payment. Also covers is how this has helped to establish a science base for Rehabilitation Psychology techniques that, while chronologically young, is growing and is a fundamental component of the specialty.
