The eular Tool-Box of Patient Reported Outcomes (PRO) aims to be a comprehensive database of validated instruments (indices, questionnaires, scales, or others), with an emphasis on PROs used in rheumatology.
There are many reasons besides that we love this growing field of research:
This EULAR resource centre is open to all who have an interest in PROs. You can contribute by sending us information about a given PRO, or on a long term by committing for any given rheumatic or musculoskeletal disease or topic (e.g. work productivity) for at least five years.
The Toolbox is a public-funded, EULAR project. The volunteers who have entered information in the Toolbox are unpaid. The pharmaceutical industry plays no role in the Toolbox. PROs which are copyrighted are not presented in full text version since they are copyrighted, but no selection of PROs is performed.
The PROs are found by a systematic literature review coupled with expert opinion, by volunteers who are experts in their field. There is no selection of PROs since our aim is to be exhaustive for all PROs used in the field of rheumatology and published at least in English.
