Health of the Nation Outcome Scales for Elderly People (HoNOS65+) is a member of the Health of the Nation Outcome Scales (HoNOS) family of measures. It is a clinician rated tool developed by the Royal College of Psychiatrist’s Research Unit.

In New Zealand, HoNOS65+ is the outcome measurement tool mandated by the Ministry of Health for use with people 65 years and over who are accessing specialist mental health services.

The guide has been developed as a resource for:

  • clinicians and managers in mental health services
  • site coordinators and data quality personnel
  • outcomes trainers (to assist deliver training in their respective services).

It brings together resources that have previously been available as separate documents. These include the Clinician’s Reference Guide, Version 2.1, 2015; the Mental Health Outcomes Information Collection Protocol (ICP), Version 3.0, April 2021; and the original e-booklets for each of the HoNOS measures, 2014.
