PROMIS Physical Function, Upper Extremity and Pain Interference Reference Scores for the elderly (50+)

A web application that can be used to obtain patient-specific reference values for PROMIS Physical Functioning, Upper Extremity, and Pain Interference item banks in general populations from the USA, UK, and Germany.

New publication: Frequently Used Patient-Reported Outcome (PRO) Measures of General Physical Function Were Highly Correlated With a Multi-Task Performance Outcome (PerfO) Test Battery

Gregor Liegl just published a new study investigating the concordance between patient-reported physical function and the results of actual physical performance tests. Find the publication here!

Frequently Used Patient-Reported Outcome (PRO) Measures of General Physical Function Were Highly Correlated With a Multi-Task Performance Outcome (PerfO) Test Battery

**Objectives** This study aimed to determine the relationship between frequently used patient-reported outcome (PRO) measures and a multi-task performance outcome (PerfO) measure of general physical function (PF) and to examine the association of …

Comparison of the PROMIS Preference Score (PROPr) and EQ-5D-5L Index Value in General Population Samples in the United Kingdom, France, and Germany

**Objectives**: The Patient-Reported Outcome Measurement Information System (PROMIS) Preference score (PROPr) can be used to assess health state utility (HSU) and estimate quality-adjusted life-years in cost-effectiveness analyses. It is based on …

Achieving reliable pain change scores forindividuals in the postoperative phase: carefullychoose sampling density, test length, andadministration mode

Despite tremendous efforts to increase the reliability of pain measures and other self-report instruments, improving or evenevaluating the reliability of change scores has been largely neglected. In this study, we investigate the ability of 2 …

More flexible response functions for the PROMIS physical functioning item bank by application of a monotonic polynomial approach

Purpose: In developing item banks for patient reported outcomes (PROs), nonparametric techniques are often used for investigating empirical item response curves, whereas final banks usually use parsimonious parametric models. A flexible approach …

New publication: More flexible response functions for the PROMIS physical functioning item bank by application of a monotonic polynomial approach

Carl Falk from McGill University in Montreal, Canada and I investigated the use of a more flexible IRT model to fit the PROMIS Physical Function Itembank. The paper has been now published in Quality of Life Research’s nonparametric IRT section.
