Patient Reported Outcome Measures

Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) are self-completed questionnaires that can measure a variety of global, disease-specific, and joint-specific outcomes and have become the gold standard when quantifying post-treatment patient experience. Presented herein are musculoskeletal PROMs resulting from a comprehensive literature search which have been specifically validated in children and adolescents. Also included are corresponding scoring sheets (where applicable), original reliability and validation studies, and psychometric properties. All PROMs have been grouped by anatomic region and/or outcome focus.
