Patient-Centred Outcome Measures

/Patient-Centred Outcome Measures

As a relatively new concept, Patient-Centred Outcome Measures (PCOMs) aim to place patients, their families and carers at the heart of decisions concerning the most valuable criteria in health assessment, rather than leaving assessments solely to clinicians. PCOMs should provide evidence on the impact of a disease and treatment on patients. PCOMs include but are not limited to self-reporting instruments: they embrace all forms of clinical outcome assessments (COAs). PCOMs may be used for several purposes, such as: efficacy endpoints in clinical trials, outcome measures in registries, guides to treatment choices for daily care, or tools to monitor care delivery. PCOM identification and validation require rigorous planning, methodology, and partnership between investigators and patient organizations.
