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. It has been rigorously tested for reliability and clinical validity, is quick and simple to use, and is used for treatment planning, clinical management, audit and research. It allows for the aggregation of data so that comparisons can be made for the purposes of internal and external benchmarking.

The companion volume to this book, Therapy Outcome Measure User Guide , focuses on the practical and everyday use of the TOM, and contains 50 developed scales as well as 18 scales under development. However, before implementing TOM it is important that users have a thorough understanding of the theory and research underpinning the measure and how it should be used, and this book is an essential tool for this purpose. In addition, the real-life case studies illustrate the breadth of TOM use and how the scales can be used or adapted for a variety of clinical settings.
