The ICHOM Set of Patient-Centered Outcome Measures for Personality Disorders is the result of hard work by a group of leading psychiatrists, psychologists, mental health experts, measurement experts, and lived experience experts. It represents the outcomes that matter most to adults and adolescents with personality disorders. We urge all providers around the world to start measuring these outcomes to better understand how to improve the lives of their service users.

All of the basic information you need to implement ICHOM Sets is available in the links above.
However, for a faster, more easily integrated process, we offer digitised versions of the Set measures. These are designed for immediate upload to existing EMR systems.
