Abstract

Background: There is a need for clinical tools to identify cultural issues in diagnostic assessment. / Aims: Assess feasibility, acceptability, and clinical utility of the DSM-5 Cultural Formulation Interview (CFI) in routine clinical practice. / Method: Mixed-methods evaluation of field trial data from six countries. The CFI was administered to diagnostically diverse psychiatric outpatients during a diagnostic interview. Post-evaluation session, patients and clinicians completed debriefing qualitative interviews and Likert-scale questionnaires. Durations of CFI administration and full diagnostic session were monitored. / Results: Mixed-methods data from 318 patients and 75 clinicians found the CFI feasible, acceptable, and useful. Clinician feasibility ratings were significantly lower than patient ratings and other clinician-assessed outcomes. After administering one CFI, however, clinician feasibility ratings improved significantly and subsequent interviews required less time. / Conclusions: The CFI was included in DSM-5 as a feasible, acceptable, and useful cultural assessment tool. / Declaration of interest: Three co-authors receive royalties from the CFI Handbook.
