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:
- Looking after yourself
- Managing symptoms
- Work, volunteering and other activities
- Where you live
- Family and friends
- Feeling positive
The Well-being Star scales are based on a five-point Journey of Change:
- Not thinking about it
- Finding out
- Making changes
- Getting there
- 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.
