The Clinical Outcomes in Routine Evaluation-Outcome Measure

A useful option for routine outcome monitoring in Latin America

Keywords: CORE-OM, Latin America, Routine outcome monitoring, Psychotherapy research

Abstract

Latin American mental health services are moving from the psychiatric hospital model to a community-based model. The effectiveness of these new services needs to be evaluated and that can be done through routine outcome monitoring. The present communication introduces the Clinical Outcomes in Routine Evaluation – Outcome Measure (CORE-OM), a free instrument, supported with rigorous psychometric exploration, and which has been translated to Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese that can be used for monitoring purposes across the region.
