More about Outcome Measures

The focus of Clinical Corner for the past 2 months has been on outcomes and outcome measures.  The June 2019 article, Outcomes and Outcome Measures in Seating and Mobility: Current Practice, distinguished between outcomes and outcome measures and highlighted some of the results of a survey with therapists practicing in seating and mobility in Canada regarding their use of outcomes and outcome measures.  The July 2019 article, From Outcomes to Outcome Measures: Next Steps, reviewed the relevance of outcome measures and the key considerations when selecting outcome measures. Clinical Corner will continue the theme on outcome measures this month with a focus on specific outcome measures that can be used in seating and mobility.

Outcomes and Outcome Measures in Seating and Mobility - Current Practice

There is a subtle difference between outcomes and outcome measures in seating and mobility. Whereas outcomes may include subjective descriptions, outcome measures can be objective, quantifiable means of validating interventions. The results of an on-line survey suggest that many therapists involved in seating and mobility in Canada consider outcomes when working with clients. Some outcomes, such as pressure mapping, sitting tolerance and using SMART goals, allow for some aspect of measurement to occur. A future Clinical Corner article will provide additional details on outcome measures that help to provide objective quantification of outcomes such as those mentioned in this month’s article.
