Dr. MEL, may I ask about the concepts of outputs and outcomes? I am still confusing about them. For example, the number of temporary shelters managed by the Home Affairs Department, is it output or outcome?

Thanks for asking! Outputs are tangible products, capacities, or deliverables that result from the activities, while outcomes are changes that occur in other people or conditions because of the activities and outputs. So the number of shelters shall be considered as output.

Could you please give us a clue about how service users apply for the occupational therapy service of SRACP? As we want to evaluate the convenience for applicants to get access to this service.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
