The concept, measurement, and integration of response shift phenomenon in Patient-Reported Outcomes data analyses - On certain methodological and statistical considerations
Vanier Antoine - Post-Doctoral Researcher in Biostatistics - University of Nantes
Patient-Reported Outcomes are increasingly used in health-related research. These instruments allow the assessment of subjective concepts such as Health-Related Quality of Life, anxiety level, pain or fatigue. Initially, the interpretation of a difference in score over time was based on the assumption that the meaning of concepts and measurement scales remains stable in individuals’ minds over time. This assumption has been challenged. Indeed, the self-assessment of a concept is now understood as a contingency of the subjective meaning a subject has of this concept, which can change over time especially as a result of a salient medical event: the “response shift” phenomenon. Since the end of the 1990s, researches on response shift phenomenon has become of prime interest in the field of health-related research. If developments have been made, it is still a young field with various scientific debates on a theoretical, methodological and statistical level. Thus, the broad objective of this thesis is to investigate some methodological and statistical issues regarding response shift concept, detection and integration into PRO data analyses. The manuscript is composed of three main works: a state of the art and synthesis of the works conducted at an international level since response shift phenomenon is investigated, a pilot study investigating the statistical performances of the Oort’s Procedure (a popular method of response shift detection using Structural Equation Modeling) by simulations and a theoretical work about the links between response shift occurrence and semantic complexity of concepts measured and items used.
