I previously brought to your attention the new organization in New Zealand that was created to promote dissemination of PCOMS, Partnering for Outcomes Foundation Aotearoa. I posted the study they did of PCOMS from both consumers and providers points of view. They have recently launched their website, www.pcoms.nz just in time for my visit to NZ next week to conduct a Training of Trainers Conference in Wairoa. Thanks especially to Robyn Pope, Project Leader of the Heart and Soul of Change Project for her efforts and dedication to spreading the PCOMS gospel.
I really like David Hanna’s (a key member of the POFA team) quote: “PCOMS is a key ingredient that helps translate nice intentional language on mission statements into tangible measurable effective change.” PCOMS does operationalize values we hold dear.
They are leading the charge in NZ for PCOMS. Many there are getting on board in Better Outcomes Now and another web application, Exess Connectivity. Exess is a case management, client record system that includes a PCOMS module and is perfect for social service organizations that need a comprehensive system. For you Kiwis and Aussies, check it out at www.exess.co.nz.
