Enabling health and wellbeing in later life: Scottish policies and programmes March 2011 Table 5 cont/…. Problem/issue to which it is a solution Activities Action Area or Programme: User centred outcome measurement (Talking Points) 7 combine user and carer involvement with an outcomes approach to planning, delivering, evaluating and improving services Development of tools, guidance and resources to: • Promote a focus on outcomes at assessment, care planning and review. • Place the person (older person) at the centre of a more personalised approach. • Support staff to use outcomes focused conversations with service users. • Enable information on service user and carer outcomes to be systematically gathered during assessment and review processes. • Support organisations to use this information to improve outcomes at individual, service and organisational levels to plan, evaluate and improve services. Table 5 demonstrates the considerable activities undertaken by JIT in all areas of health and social care relevant to older people. They work across Scotland in all areas. 184.108.40.206 JIT involvement in the measurement of outcomes JIT have also supported partnerships to measure outcomes and use the results to improve services,which is integral in developing services for older people. Talking Points is a user and carer outcomes approach to assessment, planning and review that aims to shift engagement with people who use services away from service-led approaches. The use of Talking Points7 is a key stream of the Community Care Outcomes Framework (see section 220.127.116.11). JIT is also supporting work to implement the older people’s Indicator of Relative Need (IoRN™)7with ISD, a tool which can be used to identify older people with high support needs or in need of care and as a tool for objectively measuring changes in independence. 18.104.22.168 Reshaping Care for Older People Although JIT works across all aspects of health and social care a key area of development has been the Reshaping Care for Older People programme7. This programme is driven by the recognition that service configurations for care for older people are not sustainable given the predicted demographic and financial pressure over the next 20 years. Lead by JIT, NHS and COSLA the programme aims to engage all interests (public, healthcare, social care, third sector etc.) in reshaping care and support services so that policy objectives are met in ways that are sustainable. The original programme consisted of 8 primary work streams (summarised in Box 3).
