Prof Edward Davis (UK) lectures briefly on the best way to measure function after total hip and knee arthroplasty. Outlining the principles of both Patient-Related Outcome Measures (PROMS) and Performance-Based Outcome Measures (PBOMS), he continues to explain the practical assessments typically found in PBOMs and how they aim to ascertain what a patient can actually do. Prof Davis compares each approach, and factors that may influence data, before concluding with guidance on the best measurement approach following surgery.
