Objectives: The aim of this paper was to test the measurement properties of self-report (SR) and significant other (SO) versions of the Health of the Nation Outcome Scales (HoNOS). Method: SR and SO HoNOSs, with content closely paralleling the clinician HoNOS but with item 8 expanded into scales rating each difficulty separately, were developed and trialed with Early Intervention for Psychosis service users and their significant others.

Use of health of the nation outcome scales in psychiatry

The potential barriers to implementation of HoNOS on a wide scale are considered, its future role in evaluating effectiveness and benchmarking of services are discussed, and its psychometric properties, qualitative attributes and uses in clinical practice and research are discussed.
Measurement properties of the Health of the Nation Outcome Scales (HoNOS) family of measures: protocol for a systematic review
TLDR
This planned systematic review will critically appraise evidence on the measurement properties of the HoNOS family of measures to assess whether they are fit for use with intended service settings and populations and to establish performance benchmarks.
