Patient-Reported Outcome Measures: A Resource for Recreational Therapists

Bryan P. McCormick, David R. Austin


To our knowledge, information on patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) has not appeared in the literature of recreational therapy. This article provides an introduction to PROs and PROMs so recreational therapists may understand them and see their possible applications within recreational therapy. In this article, PROs and PROMs are described. Specific examples of PROMs, and resources for accessing them are provided. Discussion on the value of PROs in the enhancement of client care, challenges to the use of PROMs, and the relevance of PROMS to recreational therapy practice and research follows. It is concluded that the use of PROMs is an emerging approach that recreational therapists need to explore.
