Using a ‘suite’ of measurement scales overcomes limitations and provides practitioners with a clearer picture of a client’s mental health. Measures provide clinicians with the information they require to support the development of management/care plans, as well as the monitoring, review and evaluation of that care. Measuring the health outcomes of consumers in mental health services is critical to ensure that every consumer continually benefits from the treatment and care they receive. The systematic evaluation of outcome is becoming increasingly more routine in the provision of mental health and therapeutic services. Policy makers, third-party payers, government agencies, and consumers are concerned that limited health care dollars be spent on treatments that work. While therapists may feel singled out in this process, observers of Journal of Brief Therapy Volume 2, Number 2 • Spring/Summer 2003 JBT 2(2) pp. 91-100 2/3/04 10:51 AM Page 91 note that interest in outcome is not specific to mental health, but rather is part of a worldwide trend (Andrews, 1995; Humphreys, 1996; Lambert, Okiishi, Finch, & Johnson, 1998; Sanderson, Riley, & Eshun, 1997). Experience shows that no single measurement scale offers an accurate overall picture of a person’s mental health. Patient-reported outcome (PRO) is an "umbrella term" that covers a whole range of potential types of measurement but it is used specifically to refer to all measures quantifying the state of health through the evaluation of outcomes reported by the patient himself/herself.
