Qualification: Level 4 Diploma in Adult Care
Unit: Facilitate support planning to ensure positive outcomes for individuals and to support well being
Learning outcome: Understand the theories and principles that underpin outcome based practice
Assessment criteria: 1.1 Critically review approaches to outcome-based practice

  • Outcome-based practice involves focusing on the end-results or impact that care and support services have on an individual’s life
  • This is person-centred because it supports service users to achieve the goals that are important to them
  • E.g. an outcome for an individual with a learning disability may be that they want to be able to cook for themselves rather than being reliant on others
  • Approaches to outcome-based practice include:
    • Results-based accountability – success is measured by reviewing services against the outcomes agreed with service users
    • The Logic Model – a framework for describing how services will achieve outcomes. Usually a graphical representation that shows the inputs, outputs, outcomes, context and the relationships between them all
    • Outcomes management – a system for identifying outcomes, planning activities to achieve them, tracking progress and evaluating results
    • Outcomes into practice – how outcomes can be used in day-to-day practice
