Short-form PROMs: Relevance, utility, and risks for health providers and policy makers
In this webinar, the speakers intend to provide an overview of considerations for using PROM short-forms in research, clinical practice, and policy making. We will describe methods for developing PROM short-forms while considering content validity, reliability and responsiveness. We will discuss how PROM short-forms can be used to inform clinical care and policy and provide an overview of the possible risks with and solutions to using PROM short-forms in clinical practice and policy-making.
These topics and methods for PROM short-forms will be described, using examples, during the webinar by the speakers. The presentation will be followed by an interactive Q&A session during which the speakers will address questions from the audience.
At the conclusion of the webinar, participants will have an understanding of the current state of evidence on the use of PROM short-forms. They will also gain insights into research gaps and potential challenges for using PROM short-forms in clinical practice and policy-making.
There is a growing interest in the use and implementation of PROMs in clinical practice and policy. However, a commonly stated barrier to using PROMs in clinical practice and policy making is the perception that existing PROMs, often developed for research purposes, are too long.
After the webinar, the learner will be able to:
- Ascertain the relevance of PROM short-forms according to the intended context of use
- Delineate the theoretical measurement principles for the development of PROM short-form
- Describe how short-form PROMs can be used to inform clinical care and policy
- Outline mitigation solutions to manage the risks and benefits associated with using short-forms, compared to long-term forms, in clinical practice and policy-making
