Leading Clinical Journal Article Shows
That New and Briefer Disease-specific
Quality of life (QOL) Measures Are Also
More Clinically Valid
JWRG’s efforts to improve disease-specific health-related QOL
measures by broadening item content, strengthening psychometric
methods and maintaining 1-minute response times can also make QOL
measures more valid and useful clinically...
New Quality of life Disease
Impact Scale (QDIS®) for multiple
chronic conditions published by JWRG
Broader quality of life content and standardized scoring enable
the first disease-specific summary measure of QOL impact with
population norms for multiple chronic conditions.
Making patient-reported outcome
measures more useful
Our mission is to develop patient-reported outcome (PRO)
tools that satisfy
growing requirements for PRO data and provide
information that is useful in
research and clinical practice.
