Overview of the Millon Behavioral Medicine Diagnostic (MBMD)
Presenter: Michael H. Antoni, PhD
The Millon Behavioral Medicine Diagnostic (MBMD) helps assess psychosocial factors that may support or interfere with a chronically ill patient’s course of medical treatment. It offers population-specific reports for general medical patients, pain patients, and bariatric patients. Composed of only 165 true/false items and featuring 38 clinically relevant scales, the MBMD helps increase the likelihood of positive treatment outcomes and thereby helps reduce overall cost of patient care.
This webinar will provide an introduction to the MBMD and describe the underlying theory, administration and interpretation of the inventory. It will also illustrate how the MBMD can be used as part of a comprehensive evaluation to identify patients who may have significant psychiatric problems, and construct treatment plans tailored to their individual needs.
