Translatability, Translation and Cultural Adaptation of PRO’s: addressing language during and after instrument development

In order to produce translations that are equivalent to their source, translation should not be an afterthought of item and instrument development.

Early assessment of translatability and cultural adaptability facilitates translations and improves the English version as well. Equally important is the translation methodology. Translation of PRO measures is much more than just a literal, word for word translation process. Obtaining translations through a rigorous methodology is fundamental in furthering the equivalence, comparability and data poolability of translated measures.

In this presentation we will 1) describe translatability assessment methods to ensure that survey instruments are appropriate for translation into other languages and for use in multicultural contexts; 2) describe the translation methodology adopted by PROMIS®; and 3) review examples of translatability challenges and translation issues and how to resolve them.

An introduction to implementing PROMIS in clinical settings

 Summary: Patient-reported outcome (PRO) measures including PROMIS are increasingly being integrated into clinical practice settings to inform care, evaluate healthcare quality, maximize payer incentives, and create research databases. Successful implementation requires knowing the purpose of PRO administration, selecting measures that match that purpose, setting up PRO capture technology, and using evidence-based strategies for changing clinical care delivery. In this workshop we will present an implementation framework and explore case studies noting barriers and strategies to address those barriers.

 Audience: clinicians, clinical researchers, healthcare quality professionals considering or planning to implement PROMIS in a clinical practice setting

Introduction to PROMIS, IRT and CAT

This workshop will provide a basic understanding of Item Response Theory (IRT) and Computerized Adaptive Testing (CAT) and their application in the Patient Reported Outcome Measurement Information System (PROMIS).  Attendees will become familiar with basic IRT terminology, what IRT is, how IRT works, and how IRT compares to classical test theory.  The fundamentals of CAT will be discussed.  Attendees will learn what is required to create and administer CAT.
