Abstract

Patient-reported outcome measures (PROM) are potentially useful outcome measures that may be reported at the individual clinical, health service and/or health system level. PROM require clearly defined patient populations to enable comparisons, and are most meaningful when integrated with clinical data sets. Where possible PROM should be measured pre- and post-intervention using reliable and validated tools. A variety of PROM collection methods exist which each have strengths and limitations, with selection depending on their purpose and patient factors. PROM programmes should be developed with high levels of clinician support and patient input to maximise collection of clinically relevant information.
