The CLAHRC and its partners have developed improved methods for capturing, analysing, combining and communicating the evidence of patients’ outcomes and experiences via the creation of two new robust PROMS:

The Musculoskeletal Health Questionnaire (MSK-HQ)

This new PROM is tailored to work across all musculoskeletal conditions (those which effect the joints, bones and muscles, as well as some rarer autoimmune diseases and back pain).

The Long-term Conditions Questionnaire (LTCQ)

This is a new generic PROM, designed to work across all long-term conditions (physical and/or mental health including multi-morbidity) and to be applicable within a range of services, including primary care and social care.

The LTCQ could be used as a stand-alone measure or as a complement to existing measures, to fully capture what it means to ‘live well’ with long-term conditions.
