This study examined the efficacy of task analysis training for case managers helping seriously mentally ill patients find roommates and housing.
Behavioral objectives and task analysis were used to develop the task-oriented behavioral training program.
Case managers were trained to use a checklist for every session with patients, which included the goal of the session, tasks required to accomplish that goal and lists of all the sub-tasks.
The results of this study suggest that this methodology :
(1) reduced the time required for patients to find roommates and housing ;
(2) increased the percentage of patients finding housing ;
and (3) decreased hospitalization rates occurring during the process of looking for roommates and housing.
