Lack of "appropriately assessed" Patient-Reported Outcomes in randomised controlled trials assessing the effectiveness of interventions for rosacea.

Br J Dermatol. 2012 Jul 14;

Authors: van Zuuren EJ, Fedorowicz Z

Abstract
Rosacea is a chronic skin disease and psychological problems are fairly common in people affected by rosacea. The persistent red pimply rash on the face can be a source of embarrassment, anxiety and low self-esteem, may instil a lack of confidence and may even lead to depression or body dysmorphic disorder. Rosacea can also have a significant negative impact on health-related quality of life (HRQoL).We have documented the patient-reported outcomes (PRO) used in clinical trials identified in the Cochrane Review on the effectiveness of interventions for rosacea published in the Cochrane Library March 2011 and reported their measurement properties.(1) Here we discuss the results.
