The Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS®) is a set of person-centered measures to assess how people feel and function. PROMIS® uses advances in psychometrics, information technology and qualitative, cognitive, and health survey research to measure more than 500 different symptoms and functional impacts across chronic diseases that impact quality of life. PROMIS patient-reported outcomes (PROs) are available for children and adults.
PROMIS® measures are available as item banks for computer adaptive testing (CAT) or static fixed length short forms (SF).
PROMIS® Canada is an initiative to help make PROMIS® measures accessible to Canadian researchers, health care providers, and policy makers. PROMIS® Canada is led by Drs. Susan Bartlett and Sara Ahmed, and based at McGill University
