Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs)
We have provided some completed PROMs to give you a more complete view of the worked examples. If you are not familiar with the PROMs used, please read the short summary below, or click on the links for more details:
The RCADS is a 47-item, questionnaire with parent- and CYP-report versions. Items are rated on a 4-point Likert-scale from 0 (‘never’) to 3 (‘always’).
There are 6 subscales, covering symptoms of:
- Separation anxiety disorder
- Social phobia
- Generalized anxiety disorder
- Panic disorder
- Obsessive compulsive disorder
- Major depressive disorder (MDD).
The RCADS also yields a Total Anxiety Score (sum of the 5 anxiety subscales) and a Total Internalizing Scale (sum of all 6 subscales).
The SDQ is a 25 item behavioural screening questionnaire with CYP- and parent-report versions. It is rated on a 3 point scale from ‘not true’ to ‘certainly true’.
The SDQ has 5 subscales, covering the following:
- Emotional symptoms
- Conduct problems
- Peer relationship problems
- Prosocial behaviour
It also yields a ‘total difficulties’ score (sum of the first four subscales).
