PoC

The Perceptions of Care (PoC) surveys are clinical-care oriented, self-report satisfaction rating scales. In developing the PoC surveys, McLean focused on patients' perception of the quality of the interpersonal care they received during hospitalization and outpatient treatment. Use of the PoC survey provides detailed feedback about patients' experience of their treatment during a time when contact with patients is highly focused and time-limited. The survey gives patients the opportunity to anonymously rate care and to recognize clinicians and staff who were particularly helpful in their recovery. There are two versions of the PoC survey, one to be used with outpatients, PoC-OP, and the other to be used with inpatients, residential and partial hospitalization patients, PoC-IP.


PoC-Inpatient and Residential/Partial Survey

The PoC-IP measures four domains:

  • Continuity and Coordination of Care

  • Communication / Information Received From Provider

  • Interpersonal Aspects of Care

  • Global Evaluation of Care

*In addition to the validated 18-items, the PoC-IP includes three additional items on facility cleanliness, food, and group programs. Results of these three items are included in reports but not factored into domain scores.


PoC-Outpatient Survey

The PoC-OP measures five domains:

  • Continuity and Coordination of Care

  • Communication / Information Received From Provider

  • Interpersonal Aspects of Care

  • Global Evaluation of Care

  • Access and Availability of Provider
