Development of outcome measures in acute psychiatry

  • Femi Oyebode, Stuart Cumella (a1), Gill Garden and Judith Nicholls (a2)
Extract

This study is an evaluation of the use of two health status measures for monitoring the outcome of acute psychiatric treatment. The measures are the Sickness Impact Profile (SIP) and the Classification of Illness States (CIS). The SIP is a measure of the impact of sickness on patients' daily activities and behaviour. The CIS was initially developed to measure ‘morbidity states’ after hospital treatment and can be used to generate the ‘Rosser Index’, both of which have been shown to be valid and reliable measures (Rosser, 1988).
