Well-being Star™
The Outcomes Star for adults self-managing health conditions

 Copyright: Triangle Consulting Social Enterprise Limited

The Well-being Star has been designed for people living with a long term health condition, to support and measure their progress in living as well as they can. It can work as a stand-alone tool, or as part of Personal Health Plan materials. The Well-being Star is designed to either be self-completed by a patient, or ideally completed by a patient and health professional together.

For more information about how the Well-being Star can support a variety of common approaches within the health sector, see our Health page.

The Well-being Star was developed by Triangle in collaboration with North East Essex PCT and with funding from the Department of Health.  Read our case study demonstrating how the Well-being Star can be used across a number of health settings. 

The Well-Being Star supports and measures progress in eight outcome areas that together enable people to live as well as they can with a long term health condition. These are:

  1. Lifestyle
  2. Looking after yourself
  3. Managing symptoms
  4. Work, volunteering and other activities
  5. Money
  6. Where you live
  7. Family and friends
  8. Feeling positive

The Well-being Star scales are based on a five-point Journey of Change:

  1. Not thinking about it
  2. Finding out
  3. Making changes
  4. Getting there
  5. As good as it can be

Full resources are available for organisations with a Star Licence and training for all workers and managers using the Star.
