Thank you for a wonderful Outcomes Star training day. After you left, the room was buzzing with enthusiasm and excitement. We will continue to do what we can to embed this tool within the Adult Mental Health Directorate.

Enquiries and bookings

Please complete a short training enquiry form to help us respond appropriately to your enquiry. If you have any further queries, please contact us or call 020 7272 8765 to discuss your needs with a Star trainer and consultant.

If you are already using the Star and have not had training, because you accessed the Star before this was a requirement, you can continue with the Star but we strongly recommend training to ensure proper use.

Implementation support

Adopting an outcomes approach in your organisation by implementing the Outcomes Star can bring a wide range of benefits including better, more outcomes-focused keywork, a more consistent approach within teams, better coordination between teams and with other agencies, and timely relevant outcomes information for management and external reporting.

Achieving these benefits requires an implementation programme and on-going attention and support to make it happen.

We can support your organisation with all aspects of implementation including:

  • Working with an internal steering group of key individuals driving the implementation process (often managers from each of the services) and advising one or more Organisational Star Champions throughout the process. This can include meetings with the steering group prior to training and being available for telephone and email support throughout
  • Designing an organisational change programme as needed to roll out the Star, including:
    • Selling the Star internally (presentation/workshop)
    • Supporting decision making on which version(s) to use
    • Planning the most appropriate training combination and timing
    • Reviewing and combining your paperwork to avoid duplication
  • Reviewing existing assessment, review and risk assessment forms to help chose what needs to be gathered in addition to the Star data
  • Combining the forms and process on paper
  • How to make the Star work on an IT level, including:
