Patient-reported outcome (PRO) measures are used to quantify the impact of interventions from the patients’ perspective. This course is designed to familiarize participants with the range and scope of what PRO measures are used for, how they are developed and evaluated, what they measure, and how PRO data can be used in clinical trial, or clinical care applications. We will discuss the properties of a good PRO measure. Participants will be able to identify steps researchers generally go through in order to develop and test a new PRO measure, including item generation, qualitative cognitive testing, and quantitative psychometric evaluation.
