Purpose and Scope

Usage Type :    
Usage Description :    
In 2014, the RCSLT carried out an appraisal of over 60 outcome measure tools against 11 criteria drawn up by RCSLT members. The RCSLT Board of Trustees considered the findings and agreed that the existing tool that is the ‘best fit’ with the 11 agreed criteria is the Therapy Outcome Measures (TOMs) core scale. TOMs can be used as a baseline pre-intervention and at the end of an episode to demonstrate the impact the intervention has had on the presenting (clinical) difficulty and on the individual’s day to day functioning (although it can also be used at points in between to track change). It looks particularly at changes in levels of independence, social engagement and emotional wellbeing. The TOMs scales address four dimensions of an individual in line with the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (WHO, 2007) – impairment, activity, participation and wellbeing.
