“Personal Outcome Measures® have had a profound impact on person-centeredness at Search,” shares Cory Gumm, CEO of Search, Inc.

The Personal Outcome Measures® (POM) is a person-centered discovery tool to explore the presence, importance, and achievement of personally-defined outcomes, along with the supports that help people attain their individual goals and dreams. Through the POM, people receiving services share what really matters to them, including their hopes and aspirations. Organizations can then use that information to evaluate the quality of their services, become more responsive, and improve the quality of people’s lives.

At an individual level, the Personal Outcome Measures® can be used to inform a truly person-centered plan, and track progress in implementing that plan. At an aggregate level, organizations can collect Personal Outcome Measures® data to analyze the impact of their supports, identify effective services, and highlight areas where additional work is needed.

In this training ‘Introduction to Personal Outcome Measures®,’ employees from your organization will experience an eye-opening exploration of the Personal Outcome Measures®.
