The purpose of this document is to provide initial recommendations to telemental health (TMH) professionals for the selection of assessment and outcome measures that best reflect the impacts of mental health treatments delivered via live interactive videoconferencing.
The guidance provided here was created through an expert consensus process and is in the form of a lexicon focused on identified key TMH outcomes.
Each lexical item is elucidated by a definition, recommendations for assessment/measurement, and additional commentary on important considerations.

The Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center, U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command, in conjunction with the American Telemedicine Association's Annual Mid-Year Meeting, conducted a 1-day workshop on how maturing and emerging processes and applications in the field of telemental health (TMH) can be expanded to enhance access to behavioral health services in the Pacific Rim.

Combat exposure among military personnel results in increased risk of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), major depression, substance use, and related health risks. PTSD symptoms require innovative approaches to promote effective coping postdeployment. PTSD's nature and scope requires an approach capable of integrating multiple health risks while reaching large populations.

Most dialysis patients have multiple comorbidities with complex healthcare needs and consume a disproportionate share of medical resources. We conducted a pilot study employing telehealth technology to determine whether home-based preventative care can improve healthcare outcomes, impact quality of life (QOL), and be cost effective by proactively managing underlying chronic conditions that place the patient at risk.
Forty-four patients (19 in the remote technology group [RT] and 25 in the usual care group [UC]) participated in this study.

To determine military women's attitudes toward menstruation and menstrual suppression with oral contraceptives in the deployed environment.
A cross-sectional descriptive design with the administration of the Menstrual Attitude Questionnaire (MAQ) and the 55-item Military Women's Attitudes Towards Menstrual Suppression Scale (MWATMS) to a convenience sample (n = 278) of women in the U.S.

This study investigates the biometric signature associated with tobacco craving and stress elicitation using principles of cue reactivity. Seventy-five non-smokers and smokers (half of whom were tobacco-deprived for 6 hours) took part in a standardized laboratory session during which they were presented with a series of film clips designed to arouse fear, amusement, or craving. Participants self-reported their emotional response to each film clip and wore non-invasive biosensors to collect physiologic data.

Researchers who conduct physical activity (PA) intervention studies provide an invaluable opportunity to further the prevention science knowledge base for implementing and delivering PA programs. Despite recommendations that screening is important to increase patient safety, the specific screening criteria best suited for different community applications are unknown. To add to the limited knowledge base, we examined the screening procedures and the occurrence of adverse events among more than 5,500 participants from 11 diverse PA interventions participating in a trans-National Institutes of Health (NIH) collaborative known as the Behavior Change Consortium (BCC).

The Behavior Change Consortium (BCC) served as a consortium of 15 National Institutes of Health-funded trials intended to link theories of health behavior change to outcomes related to improved diet, exercise, and/or tobacco cessation. Five sites developed and tested interventions aimed at changing tobacco use behaviors, and the remaining 10 focused on changing diet and/or physical activity. The BCC's tobacco dependence workgroup functioned to identify measures of tobacco use and dependence for use across the 15 BCC trials.

The Behavior Change Consortium (BCC) has provided a unique opportunity to combine and explore resources, data, processes, and knowledge as a means of strengthening the validity, reliability, and outcomes that compose the field of behavioral science. The workgroups of the BCC were able to transcend disciplinary boundaries by developing a collaborative framework that fused scholarship and creativity to explore research problems in the area of health behavior change theory and intervention. We have identified seven common elements that emerged from each workgroup and fostered inclusion, progress, and ultimately results.

The purpose of this study was to advance understanding of the self-change process in recovery from anorexia nervosa (AN). This included the development of a measure for assessing readiness to change behaviors and/or cognitions associated with recovery from AN across five stages of change, based on the transtheoretical model of behavior change. Two-hundred and seventy-eight anorexics, predominantly female, completed questionnaires that measured all constructs of the TTM, as well as the EAT-26, demographic items, and other self-reported recovery measures.

To examine whether the stages of change of exercise adoption appropriately address strenuous, moderate, and mild intensities of physical activity.
Secondary analysis of four data sets investigating transtheoretical model (TTM) constructs for exercise adoption.
Four samples of differing age groups (adolescents, n = 400; college students, n = 240; adults, n = 346; seniors, n = 504).
