PROMs in oral surgery
- •Validity: does the instrument measure what it is intended to measure?
- •Reliability: does the instrument consistently generate reproducible scores?
- •Responsiveness (sensitivity): does the measure detect clinically meaningful changes over time?
- •Acceptability: is the measure suitable for its intended purpose?
- •Interpretability: are the results measurable and clinically relevant?
