Session title: How to select an outcome measurement instrument: the COSMIN methodology
Session time: 12:45
Session synopsis: In very many cases, to measure a specific outcome many different outcome measurement instruments are available. Selecting the most suitable measurement instrument is a challenging task. Within the COSMIN initiative, we develop tools to enable professionals to conduct this selection process in a systematic and transparent way.
In this presentation I will talk about the questions ‘Which instruments are available to measure what I want to measure?’, and ‘Which one should I choose?’, and show which COSMIN tools are of use. I will touch upon the development process and on some of the quality aspects of measurement instruments.
