Outcomes assessment for people with long-term neurological conditions: a qualitative approach to developing and testing a checklist in integrated care

Research output: Other contribution


People with long-term neurological conditions (LTNCs) argue that receiving integrated services improves their quality of life. Our study explored current approaches to service integration and the outcomes that people with LTNCs want to achieve. We identified three groups of outcomes. We developed these outcomes into a checklist for staff to use during their assessment of a client's needs. We monitored how five community-based neuro-rehabilitation teams used the checklist to see if it changed the way they worked.
