Treatment-focused research is concerned with the establishment of the comparative efficacy and effectiveness of clinical interventions, aggregated over groups of patients. The authors introduce and illustrate a new paradigm -patient-focused research - that is concerned with the monitoring of an individual's progress over the course of treatment and the feedback of this information to the practitioner, supervisor, or case manager.
