Dear All
  Thank you for your responses.  I will take them back to my client and we
will work it out.  I don't think that the actual process should be that
difficult.
Again, many thanks
Don Spady

The standardized response mean (SRM) is one of several
available effect size indices used to gauge the
responsiveness of scales to clinical change.  The SRM
is computed by dividing the mean score change (i.e.,
follow-up minus baseline) by the standard deviation of
the change.  Other effect size indices use the
standard deviation at baseline (Cohen's D) or the
standard deviation for clinically stable individuals
(responsiveness statistic) in the denominator.  

The independent groups' t statistic can be used as an
index of responsiveness in trials comparing treatment
with control.  One simply divides the difference in
change scores between treatment groups by the standard
error of the difference between the group means.
