Patient-reported outcomes (PRO) are health outcomes that are directly reported by the patient, usually using paper or electronic questionnaires. PROs have a central role in health care research: With the rise of patient-centeredness, patient benefit has become the central touchstone for any health care intervention. This implies that we measure what really matters to patients, and that patients themselves are the ones who report on the outcomes of the health care they receive. However, given the highly subjective nature of many constructs measured with PROs (such as health-related quality of life), methodological rigour is crucial to the validity of PRO data. In this session, we will look at PROs from different perspectives, including instrument development and validation, patient-relevance of outcomes, bias in PRO assessment, and outcome predictors.
