Patient-reported outcome measures: Clinical applications in the field of chronic pain self-management
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractChronic pain is a major influence on patient-reported quality of life. This chapter examines ways that information from patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) can be translated into clinical practice to improve the management and self-management of chronic pain among people with rheumatic disorders and haemophilia. This includes: 1) evidence about how PROMs can be used to improve routine clinical practice and self-management programmes in rheumatic disorders and haemophilia; 2) evidence about a DVD intervention with patient perspectives about living and coping with chronic joint pain, which improved patient-reported readiness to self-manage pain; 3) evidence about pain acceptance and pain coping as influences on patient-reported quality of life among people with haemophilia; and 4) recommendations for clinical and treatment interventions to improve patient-reported outcomes for people with haemophilia-related joint pain.
