Cella and colleagues (2019) published a comprehensive validation of the popular 7-domain PROMIS health profiles: PROMIS-29; PROMIS-43; and PROMIS-57. This is the first paper reporting on the development, reliability, and validity of these profiles. Results provide relative precision and correlation of 4-, 6-, and 8-item short forms with their parent banks. Readers can learn estimated power of each short form to detect small effects (d=0.2) for general population and clinical samples, and they can evaluate relative validity of each short form with regard to differentiating known groups.

(2019) PROMIS Adult Health Profiles: Efficient short-form measures of seven health domains. Value in Health, 22(5):537-544.
There is a Value in Health publication from 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. (2019). PROMIS adult health profiles: Efficient short-form measures of seven health domains. Value in Health, 22(5): 537-544.
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 www.healthmeasures.net for details on instruments.)
