Outcome measurement is an essential part of delivering high quality speech and language therapy. Through a combination of presentations and workshop sessions, this virtual event will look at how outcome measures can support a data-driven approach to care – from using it to tailor the care provided to individual service users, through to transforming service delivery and driving quality improvement.

This is particularly important in the context of the challenges presented as a result of the pandemic, both in terms of the impact on those who have needs associated with COVID-19 and those whose care has been, and continues to be, disrupted.

The event will also provide an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of speech and language therapy services across the UK utilising outcome measures.

It is recognised, though, that outcome measurement is not always straightforward. Too often, speech and language therapy services experience challenges associated with collecting, collating and/or analysing their outcomes data, limiting the ability to make use of it to inform clinical practice and service delivery.

The workshop sessions at this event provide an opportunity for members to link up with others, share learning and solutions.
