Patient Activation Measure® Pilot

Our goal

To explore the role of the PAM® in the Victorian context

Our Patient Activation Measure® (PAM®) pilot will test its acceptability and feasibility in  Victoria. Participating health services will be able to access the PAM® tool until 31 December 2024. 

The PAM® is a validated patient-reported outcome measure that supports health services and providers to deliver patient-centred care. It has been adopted by health services in Australia and overseas.

The PAM® uses 13 questions to assess a patient’s knowledge, skills, and confidence in self-managing their own health. It places patients into one of four increasing levels of activation along a 100-point scale. An increase in a patient’s PAM® score within and between levels demonstrates an increase in patient self-management. 

The PAM® can be used:

  • as a tailoring tool to deliver person-centred care
  • for population segmentation and risk stratification
  • as a measurement tool.

We'll work to implement the PAM® as part of existing chronic disease management programs. In conjunction with CFEP and Insignia, we'll provide participants with support and training to implement the PAM®.
