Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) are increasingly used in health services research and clinical practice for the quantification of patient experiences, including quality of life, mood (e.g. depression), and satisfaction with services. Such PROMs usually take the form of questionnaires. The underlying measurement model is derived from psychometric theory, specifically Classical Test Theory (CTT). This model requires statistical analysis of questionnaire data to establish the quality of data so collected, with emphasis on the reliability (reproducibility) and validity (domain-specific measurement) of the data.
