Evaluating Practice Outcomes - Level 7 - 7OT501
About this module
Outcome measures are fundamental to all areas of practice by providing a clear base and a structure in which to organise information required.
Outcome measures have been developed to enable practitioners to measure the effectiveness of their interventions and to establish quality standards. Their use has become increasingly important within the health and social care arena. Occupational Therapists are becoming increasingly involved in implementing outcome measures in practice. Any outcome measure must be analysed and evaluated before this happens if it is to work effectively. There are now a number of outcome measures available both general and profession specific.
