The aim of this commentary is to provide an overview of clinical outcome measures that are currently recommended for use in UK Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), focusing on measures that are applicable across a wide range of conditions with established validity and reliability, or innovative in their design. We also provide an overview of the barriers and drivers to the use of Routine Outcome Measurement (ROM) in clinical practice. Research shows that clinicians and service users have a range of views about ROM and identifies the need for further clinician training on the use of outcome measures, as well as a system to improve the provision of timely feedback from those measures to clinicians and patients/carers to support real-time clinical decision-making.
