Development and psychometric validation of scales

Evidence generation

Psychometrically-validated instruments to evaluate patient-reported health outcomes

When should a psychometric scale be developed?

  • Patient experience
    Capture the patient’s experience to evaluate the impact of disease or treatment on quality of life or activities of daily living.

  • Subjective variables
    Identify subjective variables expressed by the patient when the diagnosis depends on it.

  • New need
    Conduct a linguistic validation and a cultural adaptation when there are no validated scales in the target language.

  • Identification and diagnostic
    Facilitate the detection and diagnosis of diseases or conditions that do not have clearly identifiable clinical signs or symptoms.
