Functionality and feedback: a protocol for a realist synthesis of the collation, interpretation and utilisation of PROMs data to improve patient care.

Greenhalgh J, Pawson R, Wright J, Black N, Valderas JM, Meads D, Gibbons E, Wood L, Wood C, Mills C, Dalkin S - BMJ Open (2014)

Bottom Line: Existing systematic reviews have found it difficult to draw overall conclusions about the effectiveness of PROMs feedback.We have secured ethical approval for the study from the University of Leeds (LTSSP-019).We will disseminate the findings of the review through a briefing paper and dissemination event for National Health Service stakeholders, conferences and peer reviewed publications.

BMJOPEN2014005601F1: Flow diagram for realist synthesis.

Mentions: We have chosen to use realist synthesis (RS) as the methodology for this review because it is specifically designed to manage the uneven body of evidence such as is available on PROMs feedback. RS is designed to disentangle the heterogeneity and complexity of the intervention and to make sense of the various contingencies, blockages and unintended consequences that may influence its success. The methodology was developed by one of the coauthors (RP).2728 Explanation building through theory development, testing and refinement is an iterative process that occurs throughout the review. This can be broken down into six-stages as outlined in figure 1.
