Introduction

Monitoring treatment efficacy in clinical practice can be difficult. There are various obstacles, ranging from the complexity of the conditions many of our patients present with, to the way treatment priorities change over time. We need a method which embodies the holistic nature of our practice, which centres on the individual and their needs, and which is robust enough that we can employ it in a range of different situations.

In other words, we need PROM’s.

Patient-reported outcome measures (PROM’s) are becoming the gold standard of monitoring and measuring efficacy in a patient-centred care environment. They are tools which have been proven to increase patient engagement and satisfaction, and which help us apply the true essence of evidence-based practice.

But the world of PROM’s can be a minefield. There are literally hundreds of different “instruments” available. Some are more relevant in a research environment. Some are limited in their application. Some cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars to licence, making them prohibitive to use in a normal practice.

There are also genuine obstacles to their application in your average complementary medicine practice, making it difficult for practitioners to apply them without some sort of training or support.
