Common metric for physical function published in Quality of Life Research
The article about the development and validation of a common metric for physical function is now published in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Quality of Life Research. The common metric was developed in an international collaboration using combined data of almost 40,000 questionnaires completed by patients with different rheumatic conditions.
The common metric links 10 of the most commonly used physical function PROMs to a standardized score metric, which allows physical function outcomes obtained using different measures to be directly compared.
