Abstract: This review examined the state of psychometric validation in the health-related work outcome literature. PubMed, PubMed Central, CINAHL, Embase (plus Embase Classic), and PsycINFO were searched from inception to January 2016. From the 22,676 retrieved abstracts, 597 outcome measures were identified. Inclusion was based on content analysis. After the application of the inclusion and exclusion criteria, 93 outcome measures remained for further analysis. A follow-up search using the same sources, and time period, with the name of the outcome measures and the terms psychometric, reliability, validity, and responsiveness, identified 263 unique classical test theory psychometric property datasets for the 93 tools. An assessment criterion for psychometric properties was applied to each article, and where consensus was not achieved, the rating delivered by most of the assessors was reported. Of the articles reported, 18 reporting psychometric data were not accessible and therefore could not be assessed. There were 39 that scored <20 percent of the maximum achievable score, 106 scored between 20 and 40 percent, 82 scored between 40 and 60 percent, 15 scored between 60 and 80 percent, and only 1 scored >80 percent. The 3 outcome measures associated with the highest scoring datasets were the Sheehan Disability Scale, the Fear Avoidance Beliefs Questionnaire, and the assessment of the Subjective Handicap of Epilepsy. Finally, only 2 psychometric validation datasets reported the complete set of baseline psychometric properties. This systematic review highlights the current limitations of the health-related work outcome measure literature, including the limited number of robust tools available.
