Measurement-based care (MBC) is the systematic evaluation of a patient’s symptoms or factors before or during an encounter. It is used to inform treatment and behavioral health interventions. This article argues that MBC is the natural consequence flowing from evidence-based practice. In this article, MBC is defined and explained IN detail. Barriers to the implementation of MBC are presented and methods of selecting a measurement tool are evaluated. The article describes areas where MBC can be applied in forensic settings, and specific risk assessment tools are presented and evaluated, including the HCR-20v3, DASA-IV, DUNDRUM, and CGI–C. The article emphasizes how imperative it is that physicians use MBC and discusses why forensic practice is ideally suited to MBC. Measurement-based care in forensic psychiatry often say that when you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarcely, in your thoughts, advanced to the stage of science, whatever the matter may be. (Lord Kelvin, 1889).
