Outcome Measures

It is now widely recognised that the routine use of clinical outcome measures are an essential component in delivering and assuring effective treatments.

The Use of Routine Outcome Measures

Routine outcome measures can be used:

  • At the beginning and end of treatment (perhaps at review sessions in between) to establish overall progress and treatment effectiveness.

  • Session-by-session to closely monitor progress and track treatment effects, enabling treatment interventions to be finely tuned to patient response.

The Benefits of Routine Outcome Measures

Routine outcome measures help:

  • Patients to see and monitor their own progress.

  • Therapists to evaluate progress with patients at an individual level, to research their own practice as a whole to produce practice based evidence for treatments, and to be transparent about their effectiveness with chosen treatments.
