Routine outcome monitoring in specialist Perinatal Mental Health Services: free elearning launch
In 2019, CORC led on the development of an Implementing Routine Outcome Monitoring in Specialist Perinatal Mental Health Manual to support specialist perinatal mental health services to implement routine outcome monitoring.
Building on the success of the manual, CORC were approached to provide expert guidance to the development of an elearning to increase the accessibility of this guidance. We’re delighted that this eLearning has now been launched on the elearning for healthcare platform.
CORC and other key partners enabled specialist perinatal staff to use routine outcome measures to continually assess the results of the care and treatment they provide to patients in order to, where appropriate, make adjustments and improvements.
There are 12 learning modules, each takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and can be completed at the individual’s own pace.
Dr Giles Berrisford FRCPsych, National Specialty Advisor for Perinatal Mental Health at NHS England, said: “As healthcare professionals we put evidence right at the centre of the care and treatment we provide. What this learning teaches is an approach of routine evaluation and review, to make sure we are always thinking about how the care we provide can me improved for the benefit of the patient. I would encourage all those working in specialist perinatal mental health to complete the training.”

A short film to describe the benefits of the learning programme has also been created.
