Understanding Outcome Measures to Improve Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Wellbeing
The aim of this course is to support practitioners and managers working in (often non-clinical) children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing settings to understand outcomes focused practice and why it is important for their organisation.

Part of the session will cover practical aspects of choosing and using outcome and feedback measures. Participants will also be aware of the types of CORC support available and how to access this support.
This course will cover:
- Demystifying outcomes, outcomes frameworks and outcome measures
