This book discusses the role of patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) in the diagnosis and management of rheumatic diseases and their implementation in patient-centered care. It aims to improve the quality and efficiency of patient care in standard practice by outlining the appropriate information-gathering and decision-making processes. The book highlights the evidence and advanced knowledge base of PROMs in rheumatic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, osteoarthritis, and systemic sclerosis. Featuring reviews of Patient Reported Outcome tools and Physician RheuMetric Measures as well as examples of patient reported outcome questionnaires, Patient Reported Outcome Measures in Rheumatic Diseases serves as an excellent introduction and resource for implementation of PROMs in clinical rheumatology practice.
