Patient Reported Outcome Measures
Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) assess the quality of care delivered to NHS patients from the patient perspective. Currently covering two clinical procedures, PROMs calculate the health gains after surgical treatment using pre- and post-operative questionnaires.
PROMs is a national initiative devised to assess the quality of care delivered to NHS patients. Patients undergoing elective inpatient surgery for hip and knee replacement, funded by the NHS are asked to complete questionnaires before and after their operations to assess improvement in health as perceived by the patients themselves. When you had your hip or knee replacement, you will have been asked to fill in a PROMs (Patient Reported Outcome Measures) questionnaire. Additionally, you will have been contacted approximately six months after your operation with an invitation to fill out another, follow-up questionnaire. The purpose of these questionnaires is to enable the NHS to measure and improve the quality of care for all patients undergoing hip or knee joint replacement surgery.
You can find information on this national initiative here.
In additional to the national PROMs programme, the NJR also collect PROMs data from patients undergoing shoulder replacement surgery. Patients will be asked to complete a questionnaire prior to their surgery and then again at 6 weeks, 3 years and 5 years.
