The process of introducing and using routine outcome measurement in a psychological therapy service requires careful planning and preparation. The Implementation Training enables services and practitioners to address a range of factors that are critical to the process including:

  • practitioner engagement
  • integration of measures into clinical practice
  • risk assessment
  • consistency of data administration and data quality

Delivered as an on-site package, workshops typically last about five hours onsite and cover:

  • the policy context for outcome measurement in the UK
  • the CORE System methodology
  • how to complete and administer the CORE System tools
  • how to use the CORE Outcome Measure with clients/patients
  • a practical introduction to CORE software (some hands-on training may be possible, depending on the facilities available and staff involved)
  • how to make the most of the functionality of the CORE product you have invested in.
  • in depth consideration of service specific issues including:
    • how to ensure practitioner engagement
    • how to integrate outcome measures into clinical practice
