The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness

(Health of the Nation Outcome Scales for People with Learning Disabilities)



Health of the Nation Outcome Scales for People with Learning Disabilities are designed for use with people with a learning disability with mental health needs irrespective of the degree of their disability. HoNOS-LD has been tested for inter-rater reliability, convergent reliability, validity to change and acceptability in a national pilot study. Results demonstrate a good inter-rater reliability and a level of sensitivity to change that was acceptable to clinicians working in the field. A final report, HoNOS-LD pack, and training instruments are available.
