Information about Registering with My Clinical Outcomes
When prompted on the first screen please register with your name, email address, date of birth and a password of your choice.
On the next screen, please select ‘ESCAPE’ for your Hospital / Service. ‘The ESCAPE Clinician’ will then be automatically selected for you in the Lead Clinician section.
On the next screen ‘ESCAPE’ will be automatically selected for you as the Medical specialty. Simply select the problem area depending on whether you are attending for back pain, hip pain or knee pain.
Once registered, you will be prompted to complete your first online PROMs (Patient Reported Outcome Measures) assessment (if required).
Your responses to the questions are important so we can better understand your quality of life in relation to your condition. Your responses will be used to monitor changes in your symptoms and quality of life. This can help you and your clinical team to make informed decisions about what treatment is most suitable for your condition, needs and circumstances.
A reminder email will be sent to you when you are next required to log in and complete a new assessment, this is important to provide information about your ‘health status’ to your clinical team.
To prepare for the ESCAPE pain programme please complete the following three actions.
Click on the link beside each tick box to open the questionnaire. Tick them off as you complete them.
If you are unable to fill in the questionnaires, you may be asked to complete this at your appointment. Please get in touch with the team if you have any questions.
On occasion some people may not be able to complete the questionnaires themselves. This could be for a number of reasons but the programme would like all patients to be included and therefore we must endeavour to support anyone who is not able to complete the questionnaire.
If you are unable to complete the questionnaire please consider the following:
- Do you have a family member, friend, carer or neighbour who can help you to complete the questionnaire?
- Are you a member of, or do you have access to, any support groups whereby someone in that group may be able to help you to complete the questionnaire?
If there is someone who will be able to assist you in completing the questionnaire, please be advised that the information and views you provide should be your own and not those of the person assisting you.
If you are still unable to complete the questionnaire after you have considered the above, please be reassured that this will not delay your appointment or impact on the care you will receive.
If you should experience any difficulties in accessing the “My Clinical Outcomes” questionnaire, please email Livewell.Program.Cav@wales.nhs.uk
