SHIP-NP

The Structured History Protocol for Neuropsychology (SHiP-NP©) is an evidence-based, structured clinical protocol for collecting information about history, symptoms and other patient characteristics that are important for neuropsychological exams. Individual items and questions were generally selected from NIH Common Data Elements (CDEs). Using our secure, online forms completion portal, clinical neuropsychologists can collect these data for either clinical or research purposes. The development and management of the SHiP-NP© has been supported by the NAN Clinical Research Grants Program and the National Institute of Mental Health (National Neuropsychology Network; R01MH118514; see www.nnn.ucla.edu). Access to the SHiP-NP© portal may be provided free of charge to clinical NP providers and researchers worldwide.



OVERVIEW

The SHiP-NP© was created to promote standardization and facilitate data harmonization for clinical neuropsychology. It uses a collection of existing NIH CDE instruments to securely gather relevant patient information related to social and demographic background, medical and psychological diagnoses, current symptoms, and functional abilities. Real-time scoring procedures are employed to generate auto-populated outputs of aggregated results for each patient, either in prose text outputs that can be copied and pasted into reports, or in a variety of structured formats (e.g., xlsx, csv, or tab-delimited text files). These results may be reviewed by clinicians to inform neurobehavioral exams and facilitate patient care. Appropriately de-identified data may also be exported to database repositories (with appropriate IRB and institutional compliance approvals).
