There are more things in physical function and pain: a systematic review on physical, mental and social health within the orthopedic fracture population using PROMIS.


The Patient-Reported Outcomes Information System (PROMIS®) is more and more extensively being used in medical literature in patients with an orthopedic fracture. Yet, many articles studied heterogeneous groups with chronic orthopedic disorders in which fracture patients were included as well.
