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.
long term outcomes
Report that offers new evidence from more than 30 case studies, showing that even for children and families with much more complex needs, including those on the edge of care, it is still possible to achieve significant improvements in outcomes in a very cost-effective way by intervening appropriately once the families‟ needs have come to the attention of practitioners.
Outcomes framework designed to support understanding and measurement of the connections between intrinsic personal and social development outcomes and longer-term extrinsic outcomes. The framework: - Proposes a model of seven interlinked clusters of social and emotional capabilities that are of value to all young people, supported by a strong evidence base demonstrating the links to longer-term outcomes. - Sets out a matrix of available tools to measure these capabilities, outlining which capabilities they cover, and key criteria such as their cost and the number of users.
This study aimed to provide robust evidence on the immediate and longer-term benefits of home care re-ablement, by comparing outcomes for users of home care re-ablement with outcomes for people using conventional home care services; identify factors affecting the level and duration of benefits for service users; estimate the unit costs of home care re-ablement services; identify impacts on and savings in the use of social care and other services that could offset the costs of re-ablement; and describe the content of home care re-ablement services.
