Members' Forum: Building an outcomes-focused service

An opportunity for CORC members to join with colleagues from schools, statutory and voluntary sector service providers, health, local government, and academia. Together we will be considering how best to address the challenges of measuring outcomes in a variety of settings across child and young person mental health care.

Birgit Valla, Psychologist and Leader of Stangehjelpa, a community based mental health service in Norway will be presenting her experience of creating an outcome focused service in Scandinavia.

Kathryn Pugh, Children and Young People's Mental Health Programme Lead for NHS England, on what a 'gold-standard' service looks like and how to achieve it. 

Professor Miranda Wolpert will discuss the key findings from the recent 'What constitutes a good outcome?' workshop, undertaken with colleagues from the Universities of Oxford, York and Liverpool. 

We are also delighted to announce that some of our members will be presenting, feeding back on their experiences of creating outcome based services on the ground:

  • Jenny Cooke - Assistant Psychologist from Sussex Partnership
  • Nicky Martin -  Counselling and Psychotherapy Service Manager, YPAS, Liverpool Partnership
  • Claire Ely - Director, Bromley Y
  • Dr Rachel Bryant-Waugh - Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust

There will also be panel discussions with Birgit and Kathryn and the opportunity for a Q&A.
