The ICHOM Set of Patient-Centered Outcome Measures for Stroke is the result of hard work by a group of leading physicians, measurement experts and patients. It is our recommendation of the outcomes that matter most to patients having a stroke. We urge all providers around the world to start measuring these outcomes to better understand how to improve the lives of their patients.
- Includes mood and global cognitive function
- Includes pain and fatigue
- Includes mobility, feeding, ability to return to usual activities, and self care and grooming
- Includes social participation and ability to communicate
- Tracked via the PROMIS SF v1.1 Global Health, with additional single item questions for mobility, feeding, self care and grooming, and ability to communicate. The Simplified modified Rankin Scale questionnaire (smRSq) is recommended to be included.
Updated stroke set materials will be available by the end of November 2021
