Tool for Measurement of ACT (TMACT)
The Tool for Measurement of ACT (TMACT) is a contemporary evaluation tool used to assess how well a program is implementing critical elements of Assertive Community Treatment (ACT).
The TMACT is used to assess ACT program fidelity and guide higher quality ACT implementation efforts. It was developed by Maria Monroe-DeVita, Ph.D., Lorna Moser, Ph.D., and Greg Teague, Ph.D. and is used in many U.S. states and several countries.
The view of ACT offered through the TMACT is a contemporary update that comprises the following:
- Flexible and individualized application of resources, where the team delivers highly responsive, individualized, biopsychosocial and rehabilitative services in people’s natural environments that address their goals and needs, and are provided with appropriate timing and intensity;
- A team approach to treatment delivery, where a multidisciplinary group of providers with individual areas of expertise share responsibility for meeting people’s complex service needs, integrating care, and providing an armory of service interventions; and
- Recovery-oriented services as the focus of care, where the team promotes self-determination and respects consumers as experts in their own right.
The TMACT is a comprehensive rating protocol and guide, consisting of Part I: Introduction, Part II: Itemized Data Collection Forms, and an Appendix. After 8 years of pilot-testing and updating the TMACT, we offer the full tool for download here. This version is referred to TMACT 1.0, revision 3. TMACT revisions consist of more minor, clarifying updates, which should minimally impact previous scoring using earlier versions.
You can download TMACT 1.0rev3 here.
