    "Patient-centred questionnaires and patient reported outcome (PRO) measures are terms that are used interchangeably to reflect an instrument that provides evaluation of the lived experience of symptoms from the patients' perspective. PRO use has grown significantly in number and use in the past ten to fifteen years, recognising the importance of placing patients at the centre of their care [1)]. It is recognised that only those individuals experiencing symptoms can report on the more subjective elements (2). This is particularly important in the case of urodynamics, which is a clinical test. PROs provide a method of measuring subjective phenomena in an objective way and provide context to the data provided by clinical measurements. PROs can be used to record the presence and severity of symptoms and also to measure their impact, in particular on quality of life. This is useful when interpreting patients' priorities for treatment and understanding the most bothersome aspect of their symptoms"--Provided by publisher.
