In addition to the Basic Measures Training resources and the Rater and Clinical Utility Training resources, AMHOCN Training and Service Development has also produced several other publications to assist in the use and implmentation of outcome measurement:
Whose Outcome Is It Anyway?
In 2006, AMHOCN, in collaboration with Barwon Health, the lead agency of the Victorian Western Cluster Quality through Outcomes Project, produced outcome related promotional and educational materials for consumers. The “Whose Outcome Is It Anyway?” materials (DVD, brochures, posters and flipper cards) aimed to make consumers aware of the use of outcome measures, particularly encouraging them to ask about and participate in consumer self assessment. Copies of the materials can be downloaded below.
The “Whose Outcome Is It Anyway?” DVD outlines the views of consumers, carers and clinicians and explores the opportunities that routine outcome measurement holds in clinical practice. Hard copies of the promotional materials, including the DVD and other associated training materials are available on request to AMHOCN.
In the initial phase of the project, AMHOCN produced a regular newsletter to keep people informed of the activities being undertaken to implement routine outcome measurement across Australia. These newsletters can be downloaded below.
