Guide that has been developed to support the collection and use of personal outcomes data. Personal outcomes data refers to information gathered from people supported by health and social services and their unpaid carers about what's important to them in their lives and the ways in which they would like to be supported. The guide is divided into three parts.
Part 1 explores the links between an outcomes approach and qualitative data, why qualitative data is important and what it can achieve.
In this series of videos we hear about Penumbra's Individual Recovery Outcomes Counter from three different people:
- Jane Cumming, Development Manager, who describes the background, development, and implementation of I.ROC
- Sara Zielinska, Support Manager, who works with the tool daily
- Moira Hunter, volunteer and receiver of support, who has personal experience of using the tool.
One of a series of reports providing the social services workforce with brief, accessible and practice-oriented summaries of published evidence on key topics. This Insight, written by Dr Emma Miller, Honorary Senior Research Associate at Glasgow School of Social Work, considers some of the challenges of measuring outcomes and emerging responses to these.
One of a series of reports which forms part of the PROP Practitioner Research Programme, a partnership between the Centre for Research on Families and Relationships (CRFR) at the University of Edinburgh and IRISS that was about health and social care for older people.
Review which establishes the nature of activity in respect of the approach across partnerships and providers across Scotland, in particular since an earlier review in 2008. It is based primarily on interviews with forty key informants (from partnerships, providers and national organisations) and responses from a sample of those already using Talking Points to a web-based survey. Talking Points is an approach which focuses on assessing the outcomes important to the individual, planning how they will be achieved and reviewing the extent to which they have been attained.
Paper published in The Psychiatrist (2013) by Penumbra and University of Abertay.
We hear from Carr Gomm's Business Development Manager, Andrew Thomson, about the organisations approach to recording and measuring personal outcomes, the development of their conversation-based outcomes tool and how reporting works in practice for a number of audiences.
Two versions of the video are available: one short introductory summary of the interview, and another, longer and more in-depth version with details of the outcomes tool.
Julie Gardener, Assistant Director of VOCAL (Voice of carers across Lothian) talks about developing a personal outcomes approach and outcomes for integration of health and social care.
