Patient reported outcome measures in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease - Which to use?

Ekström, Magnus LU ; Sundh, Josefin and Larsson, Kjell (2016) In Expert Review of Respiratory Medicine 10(3). p.351-362
Abstract
Patient-reported outcomes (PROs), such as symptoms and perceived health status, are essential in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) for determining disease severity, impact on daily life, effect of treatment and recovery from exacerbations. This field has evolved rapidly and there are a plethora of instruments assessing different PROs. Here, we aim to provide an understanding of the concept of PROs in COPD. The PROs reflect important aspects of COPD which have a direct impact on daily life. Common symptoms such as dyspnea, cough, phlegm, anxiety, fatigue, and pain and as well as physical function and the risk for and occurrence of acute exacerbations should be assessed both in the clinic and in research. Besides impact on daily... (More)

Besides impact on daily life, some of the PROs are related to disease progress and mortality. Construction of composite variables including different disease specific and generic PROs provide a general estimation of health status. (Less)
