Measure Yourself Medical Outcome Profile
Short description
A brief indvidualised outcome questionnaire. Whilst problem specific, it also includes items on general wellbeing and is relevant across physical, emotional and social symptoms .Practitioners found that MYMOP was practical and applicable to all patients with symptoms and that its use increased their awareness of patients' priorities (Paterson, 1996).
PCCC or QoL? ?
This compendium contains patient-reported measures that are either designed to specifically measure aspects of Person Centred Co-Ordinated Care (P3C), or alternatively tools that are designed to measure some aspect of Quality of Life (QoL) or Health Related Quality of Life (hrQoL). All the measures in this compendium have been broadly categorised into one of those two concepts.
Type of measure ?
The measures in this compendium can take a variety of forms. Generally, they will be either Patient Reported Outcome Measure (PROM) or Patient Reported Experience Measure (PREM). However, we have also included a few measures that are completed by proxy-individual (PROXY), which are useful in instances where the respondent cannot answer directly (e.g. dementia or end of life). Sometimes, these measures can even be a composite of these types, and target both experiences and outcomes – we have labelled these measures “PROEMs”.
Semi-structured interview
Respondent ?

Brief description ?
A brief description of the initially reported psychometric properties of the measure.
A study comparing the SF-36 with MYMOP found that the index of responsiveness, relating to the minimal clinically important difference, was high for MYMOP: 1.14 for the first symptom, 1.33 for activity, and 0.85 for the profile compared with <0.45 for SF-36. They reported that MYMOP's validity was supported by significant correlation between the change score and the change in the MYMOP score and the ability of this instrument to detect more improvement in acute than in chronic conditions. The findings also showed that MYMOP was more sensitive to change than the SF-36. The authors highlight that MYMOP has the advantage that it can also improve patient-practitioner communication (Paterson, 1997). There has alos been a qualitative evulation of MYMOP (Paterson & Britten, 2000).
