Patient-Reported Outcomes (PROs) are considered important outcomes because they reflect the patient's experience in clinical trials. PROs have been included in the field of haemophilia only recently.
Comparing the contents of PROs measures used in haemophilia, based on the ICF
-CY as frame of reference.
Haemophilia-specific PROs for adults and children were selected on the grounds of international accessibility. The content of the selected instruments were examined by linking the concepts within the items of these instruments to the ICF
Within the 5 selected instruments 365 concepts were identified, of which 283 concepts were linked to the ICF
CY and mapped into 70 different categories. The most frequently used categories were 'b152: Emotional functions' and 'e1101: Drugs'.
The present paper provides an overview on current PROs in haemophilia and facilitates the selection of appropriate instruments for specific purposes in clinical and research settings. This work was made possible by the grant of the European Murinet Project (Multidisciplinary Research Network on Health and Disability in Europe).
