Excerpt
Over the past two decades standardization of diagnosis of mental disorders has been a major interest of psychiatrists and other mental health workers. In order to improve diagnostic precision in psychiatry, highly specified diagnostic criteria and precise definitions of mental disorders have been developed. As a result of such precision, diagnostic procedures in psychiatry have become more complex and traditional free-form clinical interviews are less likely to produce replicable diagnoses. To ensure reliable psychiatric assessment, it has been obvious that some sort of structured guides or instruments are necessary, particularly for research purposes, where these instruments are expected to improve consistency and comparability across studies, and uniformity and reliability of data within studies.
