NCCR tools and measures library

This table lists copyrighted clinical assessment tools and outcome measures for use within health and social care, plus how to access them. Most are available via the Copyright Licensing Service.

In some cases the copyright owner has decided not to enter into an agreement with us, usually because they have their own arrangements for making the tools available.

This doesn't necessarily mean that you will not be able to use the tool, or that you will be charged for doing so. It may just mean that you have to register on their web-site or contact them directly.

Where that is the case we have provided an alternative route with advice to follow.
