Abstract

Numerous self-management interventions have proven to be efficacious in the treatment of a number of mental disorders in randomized trials. However, these interventions have not yet reached clinical routine everywhere. Among other things, this is due to the fact that, in addition to the evidence-based interventions, other interventions are offered that have never been scientifically investigated, and in some cases, do not even rely on evidence-based methods of psychotherapy. The present quality criteria, developed by the two professional associations DGPs and DGPPN, are intended to help patients, practitioners and decision-makers in the health care sector to identify safe and efficacious interventions. The core quality criteria cover the following aspects: safety of patients and their data; ensuring therapeutic quality by using evidence-based psychotherapeutic methods and developing the intervention in liaison with licensed psychotherapists or medical specialists; the presence of proof of efficacy from at least one randomized trial; and transparency regarding key information, e.g., the cost of the intervention. We hope that these criteria can contribute to the inclusion of self-management interventions in the range of services covered by statutory health insurance companies.
