Clinical Practice Set
The aim of the clinical practice set is to provide a list of suitable instruments to measure health domains in clinical practice. Because there are different requirements for disease monitoring in practice compared to trials, unlike the core outcome set for trials there is no limit on the number of domains or instruments to measure each domain in the clinical practice set.
The process for agreeing the clinical practice set generally follows the same as for trials i.e. identifying all instruments, then assessing their measurement properties and feasibility for use in clinical practice. All suitable instruments will be listed and clinicians can then choose their preferred instrument(s) to measure any particular domain. In 2017, a survey was carried out of the HOME members to prioritise domains for the clinical practice set.
