The MYMOP Evaluation Tool
The Measure Yourself Medical Outcome Profile, or MYMOP as it is commonly known, is an evaluation tool developed by Dr Charlotte Paterson. It is widely used by healthcare practitioners including complementary therapists and takes the form of a simple questionnaire completed by the patient or client. It is used to measure changes in the patient’s experience of a number of symptoms which they identify at the beginning of a series of treatments. Symptoms can be physical, emotional or social.
It is a useful way to gather data about treatment outcomes and we strongly encourage practitioners to use MYMOP where possible to continue to build the evidence base for complementary therapies.
