The authors describe a drug treatment form they designed, the KDS-8,
that is suitable for use in all types of treatment settings. An important
feature is a checklist of treatable target symptoms, with categories of
improvement, no change, or worsening. Changes in drug regimen and the
clinician's reasons for them are noted. Among the advantages the authors
cite are easy retrievability of drug treatment data and the forms
suitability for use in audit procedures and research.
