Assessment and Outcomes

The Traumatic Stress Wales Assessment and Outcomes workstream was set up to develop the following:
  • National assessment standards for Part 1 and Part 2 services

  • A national minimum dataset, including core outcome measures

  • A fit for purpose central system for data analysis, data reporting and benchmarking against agreed indicators (including service user experience)

  • A clinical audit model embedded within a peer-review network

Core Outcome Measures

An agreed set of core outcome measures for adults is currently being piloted.  The measures have been selected to be brief, simple to administer and score, and helpful to the individual, clinician and service.  They cover the three clusters identified in the recently published all Wales framework for the routine use of outcome tools in mental health and learning disability services.
