Increasingly clinicians, health service providers and patients see value in the use of patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) to inform clinical practice. PROMs help bring the patient’s voice to the clinical encounter and can improve patient-clinician communication, treatment decision making, and the identification of new problems.
Generic PROMs have been used in routine adult clinical care in the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia. Using generic PROMs has the dual benefit of being able to guide individual patient care but also providing useful aggregate health information across services and condition areas that can be used for health system and policy planning.
Despite large amounts of evidence regarding the use of PROMs in adult clinical care, there is very limited research on the use of paediatric PROMs (P-PROMs) in clinical care. As a short generic tool, designed for use in children, the EQ-5D-Y is a promising tool for use as a P-PROM. This study hopes to understand the potential of generic P-PROMs, particularly the EQ-5D-Y, in routine clinical care for children.
