The FDA issued a guidance for the selection of patient-reported outcome (PRO) instruments in clinical evaluation of their products. The guidance details such topics as modification or adaptation of existing PRO instruments as well as the possibility of including patient-reported outcome instruments within real-world data sources.

As explained by the FDA in the draft guidance, PRO instruments “facilitate the systematic collection of how patients feel, function and survive as valid scientific evidence to support the regulatory and healthcare decision-making process.”
