There is a [Value in Health publication in press in 2019 that describes the development of the PROMIS Profiles:
Cella, D., Choi, S.W., Condon, D.M., Schalet, B., Hays, R.D., Rothrock, N.E., Yount, S., Cook, K.F., Gershon, R.G., Amtmann, D., DeWalt, D.A., Fries, J.F., Pilkonis, P.A., Stone, A.A., Weinfurt, K., & Reeve, B.B. (in press). PROMIS adult health profiles: Efficient short-form measures of seven health domains. Value in Health.
There are also publications on the validity of the PROMIS Profiles. For example:
Tang, E., Ekundayo, O., Peipert, J.D. et al. Qual Life Res (2019) Validation of the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS)-57 and -29 item short forms among kidney transplant patients. 28: 815. doi.org/10.1007/s11136-018-2058-2
The PROMIS profiles assess seven domains with 4-, 6-, and 8-item SFs. The short forms include items from larger item banks. These items banks were each developed and calibrated by PROMIS domain teams1 and comprise Physical Function,2 Anxiety, Depression,3 Fatigue,4 Sleep Disturbance,5 Ability to Participate in Social Roles and Activities (Social Function),6 and Pain Interference.7 With the addition of a 0-10 pain numeric rating scale, the profiles total 29, 43, and 57 items, respectively. As of February 2018, the profiles are in version 2.1. (See
for details on instruments.)
