About the Early Intervention in Psychosis programme

An EIP service is a multidisciplinary community mental health service that provides treatment and support to people experiencing or at high risk of developing psychosis. The defining characteristic of an EIP service is its strong ethos of hope and whole-team commitment to enabling recovery through the provision of individually tailored, evidence-based interventions and support to service users and their families / carers.

In April 2016, a national access and waiting time standard was introduced. The standard requires that by 2020/21 more than 60% of people experiencing first episode psychosis commence a NICE-recommended package of care within two weeks of referral.

Patient reported outcome measures are tools that clinicians and service users can use to measure and track progress and improved outcomes for services users.

NHS England recommends that three outcome tools should be used in EIP services (HoNOS, DIALOG, QPR) and the data should be flowed to the national Mental Health Services Data Set (MHSDS).

More information

The EIP e-learning module has been has been developed in partnership with the Early Youth Engagement in first episode psychosis (EYE-2) study and is designed to be an online learning resource/ training material for EIP services to support clinicians to use patient reported outcome tools.

Topics include what the outcome tools are (i.e. HoNOS, QPR and DIALOG), barriers to data collection and how to overcome them, and top tips and resources on how to use the outcome measures. The module aims to support the overall national EIP access and waiting time standard by enabling EIP services to measure and report patient reported outcomes, provide clarity on service user outcomes to identify the effectiveness of a service, and to overcome barriers to uptake of measuring and reporting outcomes.

There is a focus on team values and the activities are designed to complete as a team to align with the ethos of an EIP service therefore it is strongly encouraged that services complete the module as a team.
