PATIENT RELATED OUTCOME MEASURES (PROMs) - Quick-DASH

PATIENT RELATED OUTCOME MEASURES (PROMs) ...

are useful tools to evaluate the result of a specific treatment over a longer time period which is usually called "Follow-Up" and applied at defined time intervals, e.g. pre-treatment / post-treatment / at 3 / 6 / 12 / 24 / 36 and 60 months post-treatment. Herein I present the DASH Score which can be found at the following links:

http://orthotoolkit.com/quickdash/ (Quick DASH Score - 11 Questions / Items)
http://www.orthopaedicscore.com/scorepag..._quickdash.html

The questionnaire asks about the patient´s symptoms and the ability to perform certain activities.

Every question needs to be answered based on the patient's condition in the last week.
If the patient did not have the opportunity to perform a specific activity in the past week,
the best estimate should be made on which response would be the most accurate.

It doesn't matter which hand or arm is used to perform the specific activity;
the answer should be based on the patient's ability regardless of how the task is performed.

1. Open a tight or new jar
No difficulty --> Mild difficulty --> Moderate difficulty --> Severe difficulty --> Unable to perform task
