Section 5A: Measures and Scales

In Section 4 Evaluation we described how to design, plan and implement an evaluation of your support for survivors. Your evaluation plan should include developing a clear logic model which will allow you to describe and measure how your activities are linked to outcomes and impacts.

This section builds on this work and provides guidance on using validated measures to gather meaningful information on the clinical improvements you aim to bring about. This section will also support you to consider how to ensure that your data is transparent and robust, allowing for other factors which may influence a survivor’s recovery.
