Abstract: Boswell et al. (2022) persuasively make the case for and propose professional practice guidelines (PPG) for measurement-based care (MBC). Although the evidence for MBC is robust, implementing MBC effectively in practice requires skills and processes not discussed in the PPG. We discuss five problems with the PPG for MBC: The “what’s in a name?” problem, lack of actionable actions problem, the stopwatch problem, the stock market problem, and looking for the keys under the light problem.
