Key Practitioner Message

  • Routine outcome measurement (ROM) in CAMHS is supported by U.K. Government policy, prompting the establishment of the CAMHS Outcome Research Consortium (CORC), which recommends the use of a set of outcome measures and provides regular reports to members
  • Although the majority of CAMH services use some assessment/outcome measures, only a minority systematically implement ROM
  • Although clinicians valued the use of ROM, barriers to their implementation included lack of training and resources, clinicians’ perceptions of the limitations of existing measures and lack of regular feedback of outcome data
  • It is important to place outcomes in the context of the type of service, case complexity, diagnosis/clinical cluster and treatment goals
  • Future directions for service development might include innovative models of outcome measurement, such as session‐by‐session monitoring and feedback
