Outcomes:
Person Centred Plans clearly stem from an individual’s desire to develop a
positive change in life. To identify whether meaningful progress has been made
in utilising Person Centred Planning a number of different measurement
strategies could be employed. The challenge for all is to clearly link the actions
of the service (what the service does or ‘outputs’) to what changes as a result
(outcomes) Measurement in these terms provides a view of change in the short
term, medium to long term and also focuses the dialogue on the broader
impacts of any changes made.
