Measurement tools, Other Subject

Select a specific patient/patient group. Identify the clinical problems they may have. Identify an appropriate measurement tools (or more than one tool) that may be used in the overall management of the patient. Discuss the appropriateness of this tool(s) with respect to:

Patient problems

Validity of tool(s)

Utility of tool(s)

How the measurement may inform clinical practice (e.g. to establish a baseline of patient function,etc, to monitor progress, to aid with diagnosis, to help establish a patient problem list, to aid with treatment planning, to help develop patient management, etc.)
Responsiveness of tool(s)

Repeatability of measurements

An extensive literature search of your chosen tool should be carried out. There should be critical discussion of the studies in which the tool was used. It is not enough just to describe the studies. You may choose more than one tool if appropriate but not more than two. The studies do not necessarily need to involve the patient group you have chosen although a good proportion should. It is important that you establish the appropriateness of the tool for your chosen patient group as well as critically commenting on the quality of the studies you discuss. You will not be able to fully discuss each study to ant great depth it is more a review of the literature that you will do.
