ROLE network

Relating Outcomes to Lived Experience

Outcomes report

The ROLE network wrote a report in November 2010 as a discussion paper on outcomes. This report forms the thinking behind our event on March 14th, ROLEcamp.

We looked at nine commonly available tools for outcomes in mental health. We could not recommend any one specific existing outcome measure. We suggest that an approach based on capabilities may encourage a holistic view and be less excluding.

The report clearly states:

  • Outcomes must be selected by service users and carers.

And concludes:

“All we ask is that services always ask of each individual:  ‘What is most important to you and how might we achieve that with you?’

As it says in Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS:

“Nothing about me without me”

The report is available in PDF format – ROLE-outcomes2010
