Measuring What Matters in Child Health: Challenges, Developments and Opportunities
There are many challenges that arise in the use of patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) in pediatric populations. These include age and developmental differences, response shift associated with developmental changes and illness trajectories, identifying the best informant(s) (the child, a parent/caregiver, healthcare professional), and understanding what concepts are important to children and at what age they can reliably self-report. The aim of this symposium is to provide a forum to share and debate current conceptualizations of quality of life in children, methodological and operational challenges commonly encountered in measurement and best practice methods for addressing these.
