Patient-reported outcome measures

Patient-reported outcome measures (PROM) assesses how a patient feels and functions in a standardised way. It allows clinicians and researchers to not only hear directly from patients about their health but also quantify these reports to objectively compare, monitor and assess outcomes that are important to patients (e.g. pain, fatigue).
