Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMS) or patient-reported outcome instruments (more commonly used in the US) are psychometrically validated tools, such as questionnaires used to collect PROs. In clinical trials, for example, PROMs may be used to collect PRO data to enable a pharmaceutical company (“sponsor”) to support a claim in the product labelling (USA) or summary of product characteristics (SmPC, Europe).
