RCSLT Online Outcome Tool

Therapy Outcome Measures

Optional ROOT fields


The optional fields that are currently available are provided in the table, below. This list will develop over time in response to feedback from SLT services and in response to the changing environment.




Method of service


To record whether interventions were delivered:

  • Face to face (in-person) only
  • Remote only
  • Mixed (face to face and remote)


Direction of care

(formerly 'care pathway')

To record whether the objective of the episode of

care is to:

  • Improve
  • Sustain
  • Manage decline


Some services also choose to set up their own user-defined fields that are useful for their own reports and analysis e.g. team name, SLT name or number of sessions received.

Please contact root@rcslt.org should you wish to activate any of these fields for your service.

We need services to get involved in a pilot to explore how collecting additional data (e.g. ethnicity) might help members meet the needs of the diverse populations they work with. Please email root@rcslt.org for more information.
