National Outcomes and Casemix Collection (NOCC) measures training

The National Outcomes and Casemix Collection measures contribute to the development of clinical practice, aiming to improve the quality of care for consumers of Australia’s public sector mental health services.

Outcome measures can assist consumers in considering options for their care and treatment, and support the development of a therapeutic relationship between clinicians and consumers.

The measures can be used by clinicians to:

  • monitor the progress of the consumer
  • evaluate the effectiveness of treatments
  • assist decisions about clinical practices.

The outcome measures can also be used by team leaders and managers to:

  • better understand the needs of consumers
  • plan for allocation of resources
  • identify where service improvements are required.

The Australian Mental Health Outcomes and Classification Network (AMHOCN) provides online training for people working in mental health services about the measures that make up the NOCC.

To access the online training, visit the AMHOCN website.
