Presented by CORC Research Lead - Dr Jenna Jacob 

At our 2nd CORC Spring Seminar we will be sharing findings from recent analysis of the CORC data set, which highlights how the amount of change seen in outcome varies across different measurement tools. The session will be interactive and will open up discussion with participants about what these differences mean in terms of clinical practice, and how they might influence thinking about which measures to use to track outcomes.

We will hear about the journey of a CORC member service in determining which measurement tools were a fit for their service and for the children and young people using their service. This part of the session will provide participants with space to reflect on influences that have historically shaped their own choice of measurement tool, and to identify opportunities for development of their own practice or service.

Ideal for: service providers (frontline and strategic); researchers; commissioners; young people

CORC Spring Seminars 2021

Our Spring Seminars aim to bring you the latest learning from CORC members and our partners and collaborators. In previous years, we began to discuss with attendees what research can tell us about whether children and young people are being helped by mental health services and how we respond and define outcome data. This year, we want to continue on this journey with you by providing opportunities to hear about innovative practice, recent research and CORC member data and to consider how this might apply in your own setting. Please join us, contribute your own experiences and help us ensure young people’s outcomes are at the heart of mental health support.  

We welcome the opportunity in hosting our seminars virtually this year to reach colleagues across the country and beyond. The seminars are open to mental health and education professionals, service leads, young people and parents and anyone else interested in innovative research and dissemination practices in child and youth mental health. 

If you are a non-member, each CORC Spring Seminar costs £10. You can also book all 3 CORC Spring Seminars for only £25.
