Outcomes Compendium: helping you select the right tools for best mental health care practice in your field

This compendium is primarily designed for clinicians engaged in service delivery and development, who wish to gauge clinical effectiveness and recovery, in a balanced, culturally appropriate, ethical and respectful manner. It is designed for clinicians who perhaps are not expert in the area of outcome measurement, and who wish to be guided about the scope of instruments, and find out which instruments might be appropriate for particular forms of outcome measurement. The compendium is also aimed at service users who might want to learn about different measures, and heir properties, advantages and disadvantages.
This resource has been archived from the DH website and so is difficult to find, but available here for those needing to consider the best outcome for the clinical, research, and quality improvement programmes.
