“ASCOT 10th Anniversary Webinar Series
The Adult Social Care Outcomes Toolkit (ASCOT) measures the impact of social care (long-term care) on the quality of life of people using services and their informal carers. Although in development for much longer, it is now a decade since the launch of the preference-weighted measure in 2012. Since then, ASCOT has been used around the world in research, evaluation, policy and practice. It has been translated into Danish, Finnish, German, Dutch, Japanese and most recently, Spanish, Swedish, Norwegian and Chinese. It continues to develop, informed by international learning and use in policy and practice. ASCOT now includes tools for measuring the impact of services on informal carers and its suite of tools include Easy Read questionnaires for people with intellectual disabilities and autism and a mixed-methods approach for use in care homes.
This webinar series celebrates a decade of outcome measurement in adult social care, bringing together an international network of researchers and experts in long-term care to present their findings and consider future research priorities.
