Background  Immobilization is often needed for the treatment of wrist and hand injuries. The current best method of immobilization for several types of injuries has yet to be elucidated with little being reported on the functional differences of each type of immobilization. Purpose  The purpose of this study is to compare the functional outcome between healthy young volunteers with a 24-hour short arm cast (SAC) versus thumb spica cast (TSC) immobilization. Methods  A total of 50 healthy volunteers completed a baseline typing assessment and a Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) upper extremity functional scoring assessment...

BACKGROUND: Some cancer survivors say that while coping with their illness they have had what they identify as a highly beneficial, personal, life-transforming change (LTC; a self-subscribed condition among participants in this study, not a researcher-defined construct). Previously we found that the content of LTC was highly individual; but certain features of the LTC process were quite uniform. For example, LTC was driven by a very rational desire to remain genuinely functional as a person in the midst of highly stressful circumstances...

BACKGROUND: Mapping Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System-Global Health (PROMIS-GH) to EuroQol 5-dimension, three-level version (EQ-5D-3L) provides a utility score for use in quality-of-life and cost-effectiveness analyses. In 2009, Revicki et al. mapped the PROMIS-GH items to EQ-5D-3L utilities using linear regression (REVReg). More recently, regression was shown to be ill-suited for mapping to preference-based measures due to regression to the mean. Linear and equipercentile equating are alternative mapping methods that avoid the issue of regression to the mean...

Seung W Choi, Wim J van der Linden
PURPOSE: Most computerized adaptive testing (CAT) applications in patient-reported outcomes (PRO) measurement to date are reliability-centric, with a primary objective of maximizing measurement efficiency. A key concern and a potential threat to validity is that, when left unconstrained, individual CAT administrations could have items with systematically different attributes, e.g., sub-domain coverage. This paper aims to provide a solution to the problem from an optimal test design framework using the shadow-test approach to CAT...

PURPOSE: The Patient Reported Outcome Measurement Information System (PROMIS), developed by the National Institutes of Health, utilizes a health domain related to Pain Interference (PI). We evaluated this domain and its association with physical function (as determined by PROMIS Physical Function [PF]), administered as a computer adaptive test (CAT), and secondarily its association to a numerical 0 to 10 pain score. Our null hypothesis was that PI, as measured by CAT, has no correlation to PF and thus, there is no difference between comparisons of numerical pain scores and PROMIS PF...

We developed a Dutch-Flemish version of the patient-reported outcomes measurement information system (PROMIS) adult V1.0 item bank for depression as input for computerized adaptive testing (CAT). As item bank, we used the Dutch-Flemish translation of the original PROMIS item bank (28 items) and additionally translated 28 U.S. depression items that failed to make the final U.S. item bank. Through psychometric analysis of a combined clinical and general population sample ( N = 2,010), 8 added items were removed...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect depression has on the improvement of patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) following lumbar decompression. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Decompression without fusion is a viable treatment option for lumbar spine stenosis. Depression reportedly has a negative impact on PROMs after certain types of spine surgery, though verification of this with new, more precise outcome measures is needed...

A 6-month randomized controlled trial of spine-strengthening exercise and posture training reduced both radiographic and clinical measures of kyphosis. Participants receiving the intervention improved self-image and satisfaction with their appearance. Results suggest that spine-strengthening exercise and postural training may be an effective treatment option for older adults with hyperkyphosis. INTRODUCTION: The purpose of the present study is to determine in a randomized controlled trial whether spine-strengthening exercises improve Cobb angle of kyphosis in community-dwelling older adults...

BACKGROUND: Sickle cell disease (SCD) patients have impaired domains of health-related quality of life (HRQOL). Hydroxyurea is safe and efficacious in SCD; however, adherence is suboptimal, and patients' perceptions are poorly understood amongst adolescents and young adults (AYA). Study objectives were to: (1) examine patients' perceptions of SCD and hydroxyurea; and (2) explore the relationship of their perceptions to clinical characteristics, HRQOL domains and hydroxyurea adherence...

Plasma biomarker discovery necessitates a method for deep proteomic profiling, as well as for highly accurate quantification of the proteins in the sample. Furthermore, to obtain strong candidates for potential biomarkers, the method should be high throughput to enable a large scale analysis. Here we describe in detail PROMIS-Quan (PROteomics of MIcroparticles using Super-SILAC Quantification), a method for a simple and robust fractionation of the plasma samples by extraction of plasma microparticles, followed by SILAC-based relative and absolute quantification...

A treat to target (T2T) approach to management has become the standard of care for patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). While consensus T2T recommendations call for patient involvement in the treatment process, the targets commonly used to drive therapeutic decisions involve limited patient input. A pilot study was developed to explore whether the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) could add value to the T2T approach by providing a way to bring patient goals into the process...
