Our Legacy

Historically, McGill faculty have been at the forefront of health measurement advancement for more than 50 years.

McGill’s Legacy of Measurement Science

For 15 years, Drs. Susan Bartlett, Sara Ahmed, and Nancy Mayo have been at the forefront of developing new health measures, adapting existing measures to new populations, and optimizing existing PROMs using sophisticated advanced modern psychometric approaches including Rasch methodology and item response theory. While these methods have been used since the 1950s to optimize measurement in education, only in the past 15 years have they been applied to health measurement.
