Claire Snyder, MHS, PhD, associate professor of medicine and oncology with a joint appointment in health policy and management at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, discusses patient-reported outcome assessments and standardization of questionnaires.

Research has demonstrated that doctors and nurses can provide better care if patients complete questionnaires about their functioning and well-being.

Tailoring questionnaires to the needs that are most relevant to the individual patient is critical, Snyder says, but it’s also thought about in terms of comparative effectiveness research in which one can pool data across patients and link it with other clinical information. Therefore, there needs to be a balance between customization and standardization of patient-reported questionnaires.
