NHS Health Scotland´s Outcome Frameworks website will help you in planning and evaluating your health improvement work.  An outcomes framework is a resource to help you link what you do (activities) with what you want to achieve (outcomes).  An outcomes framework is made up of different "tools". At the moment we use these tools:

  1. Outcomes triangle

  2. Logic models

  3. Results chains.

Why did we develop these frameworks?

We developed these frameworks to help partners clarify the links between the outcomes of the services they provide and the shared health improvement outcomes that they are working with partners to achieve.

They're designed to help community planning partners develop the outcomes-focused approach to planning and performance announced by Scottish Government in the Spending Review 2007.

Outcomes frameworks are currently available for:

  • Reducing alcohol-related harm

  • Tobacco control

  • Mental health improvement

  • Health and Work

  • Healthy Weight

  • National Parenting Strategy
