We aim to find treatment solutions for stress fractures, to improve patient outcomes after treatment. Therefore we found out we also have to improve the patient reported outcome measures itself.

We reviewed the literature about stress fracture pathology, and impact on patients. A cohort presented in our clinic filled out questionnaires about return to sport rates and satisfaction.

Patient Reported Outcome Measurements (PROMs) can be used in more orthopaedic problems. Because many PROMs exist, with validation studies and reviewing the literature we want to improve quality of PROMs for foot- and ankle with eventually a consensus on which PROM to use for which purpose.
