Therapy Outcome Measures for Rehabilitation Professionals

Pamela Enderby and Alexandra John

The Therapy Outcome Measure (TOM) allows professionals from many disciplines working in health, social care and education to describe the relative abilities and difficulties of a patient/client in the four domains of impairment, activity, participation and wellbeing in order to monitor changes over time. TOM has been rigorously tested for reliability and clinical validity. It is quick and simple to use, taking just a few minutes to complete, and is used for treatment planning, clinical management, audit and research. It allows for the aggregations of data so that comparisons can be made for the purposes of internal and external benchmarking.
