Abstract

This guide has been developed to support the collection and use of personal outcomes data. It explores the links between an outcomes approach and qualitative data, why qualitative data is important and what it can achieve. It also outlines a practical approach exploring collecting, recording, analysing and reporting qualitative data about personal outcomes, as well as highlighting different approaches to qualitative analysis through case studies of people using qualitative data about outcomes for the first time.
