Computer-Assisted SCID-CV

A computer-assisted clinician-administered version of the SCID-CV (called CAS-CV) is available from Multi-Health Systems Inc. (MHS) in Canada. The clinician reads the SCID questions from a computer monitor, asks follow-up questions based on the corresponding DSM-IV criterion (as is done with the paper SCID), and enters the rating into the computer, as well as any notes about the patient's response into a text box. The computer automatically prompts the next appropriate question based on the rating entered, which prevents the user from making errors in logic. The user always has the ability to move back through the SCID in order to review or change previously entered answers based on new information. To order the CAS-CV please visit the MHS web site (www.mhs.com) or else you can, contact MHS by telephone at 1-800-456-3003 (In the US & Outside North America); 1-800-268-6011 (In Canada) or (0)845 601 7603 (In the United Kingdom).
