Clinical Outcome Measures

AABH has created a table of Clinical Outcome Measures that have been identified as reliable and valid. This table allows for sorting by any column and searching all fields. As tools are identified as useful by members, they are added to the table.

TIPS for Success:

  • Schedule regular training for staff to learn the proper use of the tool and any interpretation of results.
  • Document your training sessions (include them in HR training logs)
  • Build in program review of aggregated data for program improvement

You can get more detail about The Joint Commission focus on Outcome-based Treatment in their rationale paper (HERE).

The basis for much of the work by The Joint Commission is presented in a brief by the Kennedy Forum (HERE).

*NOTE: Listing a tool in this table is in no way an endorsement for the use of that tool. AABH places items in this table as a reference for program members. We, as an organization, do not test any of these tools and provide them as a courtesy to our members. Each item in the list has a link to learn more about each tool.
