Common measures or common metrics? A plea to harmonize measurement results

DISCUSSION: Recent initiatives have proposed to mandate a limited set of outcome measures to harmonize clinical measurement. However, the selected instruments are not without flaws and, potentially, this directive may hamper future instrument development. We recommend using common metrics as an alternative approach to harmonize test results in clinical practice, as this will facilitate the integration of measures in day-to-day practice.PMID:35421265 | DOI:10.1002/cpp.2742
