From: Patient-relevant outcomes: what are we talking about? A scoping review to improve conceptual clarity

Authors Objective/ motivation of article Type of article/ study Terms used synonymously Indicator disease/
intervention
Outcomes considered patient-relevant [instrument, if applicable]
Nilsdotter et al. 2009 [37] 1. Description of outcomes up to five years after total knee replacement for osteoarthritis from the patients’ perspective
2. Evaluation to what extent patients performed physical activities after total knee replacement
3. Identification of preoperative characteristics predicting postoperative outcomes
Prospective follow-up study 2 terms:
- patient-relevant outcome
- self-reported outcome

- knee-specific health status: pain, stiffness, physical function [WOMAC]
- general comorbidity
Nilsdotter, Isaksson 2010 [38] Prospective evaluation of patient-relevant outcomes seven years after total hip replacement for osteoarthritis focusing on pain and physical function Prospective cohort study with matched controls without hip complaints 2 terms:
