With the growing attention of Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) among healthcare providers, Eilayyan et al. (2020) sought to develop theory-based Knowledge Translation (KT) interventions to facilitate PROMs. To do this, Eilayyan et al. surveyed 25 healthcare providers. This survey is based on the Theoretical Domain Framework (TDF) and helped identify barriers to using PROMs in patient-care centers. From this survey, they found several elements that restrict the usage of PROMs, such as belief about consequences, goals, skills, knowledge, social/professional role and identity, behavioral regulation, social influence, and environmental context and resources. Using this information, Eilayyan et al. propose a multi-component KT intervention to avoid these barriers and integrate PROMs more seamlessly into clinical decision-making.
