What are Outcome Measures?

What are Outcome Measures?

Outcome Measures are tools which can be used to describe the progress of care, support and treatment. Prior to providing interventions, an outcome measure can provide baseline data.

An all Wales framework which describes the importance of effectively using ‘patient’ reported outcome and experience measures in mental health and learning disability services has been developed in consultation with service users, carers and practitioners. These tools are often known as Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) and Patient Reported Experience Measures (PREMs).

What are Outcome Measures doing to help?

A number of tools have been agreed for consistent use across Wales – they were chosen because they can be used in different settings, are evidenced based, easy to use and available in English and Welsh. The tools measure overall wellbeing, progress in achieving goals and service user experience.
