PROMs: A Critical Step, But Only One of Many

Sholom Glouberman

Abstract

Bringing the patient perspective into healthcare is now widely recognized as a somewhat-urgent need, and patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) are an excellent example of attempts to do more of this. In this commentary, the author puts PROMs into a broader perspective and then speaks more specifically about this particular initiative. The question addressed is, how well can PROMs increase patients' participation in their care?
