The following information helps to explain what clinical outcome measures are used within our organisation:
Clinical outcomes are measurable changes in a person’s health or quality of life that result from our care.
Outcomes show both of us (clinician and person), you’re getting the most out of your care.
Outcomes focus on quality of life, which are discussed together, and the improvement is what is important to you.
Outcomes could be related to your mental health.
Outcomes could be related to your physical health.
Outcomes could be related to self-care.
Outcomes could be related to daily living skills / getting out and about socially.
We use Outcomes to make sure we are making progress on what matters to you.
We use Outcomes to help make decisions/plans about your care.
We want to measure the evidence is working.
Outcome measures help us make our care better.
Outcome measures help us have conversations about what we can achieve.
We get information about Outcomes in different ways:
…by listening to the things you tell us at appointments.
…by asking you the same questions throughout your care.
…by asking you to do tasks.
…by asking you to do clinical tasks.
