Summary The article describes a team's efforts to develop a workable system of outcome measures as a means of supporting good practice and fostering meaningful therapeutic relationships with clients. The team identified their reasons for using outcome measures. Then, they considered what they wanted to measure. The Health of the Nation Outcome Scale was identified as the only compulsory outcome measure. Throughout the process, team members often expressed the need for the system to be workable.
