Patient rated wrist evaluation
Description The Patient Rated Wrist Evaluation (PRWE) is a region-specific outcome measure that evaluates wrist-related disability. It contains 15 items: five of which evaluate pain (intensity and frequency) and 10 evaluate function (specific activities and usual activities). Information gained from the PRWE can be used to determine the magnitude of wrist-related disability at one point in time and to identify change in disability over time (MacDermid 2007). The PRWE has been translated into Chinese (Wah et al 2006) and German (Angst et al 2005).
