Employment Intervention Demonstration Program (EIDP)
/ Common Protocols and Documentation Manuals
A major accomplishment of the EIDP is the development of the study’s Common Protocol, designed to collect cross-site data that address the study’s major research questions.
The Common Protocol Interviews, Clinical Reporting Form, Employment Tracking, and Service Definitions components gather information used to create the study’s vocational outcome measures, track services received, describe clinical features, assess psychosocial status, and elicit participant demographic characteristics.
The EIDP Cross-Site Program Measure assesses program characteristics such as staffing patterns and hours of availability, staff qualifications and credentials, level of consumer governance and service delivery, program philosophy, and policies in important areas such as admission and discharge.
The Personal Economy Sub-Study Protocol elicits monthly financial information such as detailed accounting of all income, expenses, assets, and value of services used, along with histories of SSI and SSDI recipiency and contacts with SSA representatives.
