Meaningful and measurable

Meaningful and Measurable was a Collaborative Action Research project funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). The project brought together three academic organisations, eight practice partners and four national stakeholder organisations with a shared interest: adopting a focus on personal outcomes in health, social care and other human services.

The project aims included:

1.To develop and test out in practice approaches to the qualitative and quantitative analysis of
personal outcomes data and use of this information for decision making within

2.To capture emergent good practice in the analysis and use of personal outcomes
information and disseminate this widely to practice, policy and academic audiences.

3.To explore the practical, epistemological and political tensions inherent in this work and
capture evidence as to the benefits and limitations of different approaches
