The Self-Care Evaluation Framework (SCEF) can support the objective evaluation of self-care initiatives. SCEF is based on the Self-Care Matrix, and is component 4 of the Self-Care Development, Commissioning & Evaluation Design (SCCED) toolkit.

SCARU is also validating the Self-Care Capability Assessment (CAPITAN) tool, which consolidates various instruments and proxy-measures of self-care. CAPITAN can be used as a decision support tool to help providers of health & social care in delivering a more effective intervention based on the self-care capability of individuals.
