    Abstract

    Patient-reported outcome measures have received increasing attention
    with regard to ensuring quality improvement across the health
    service. However, there is a risk that people with disabilities and low
    literacy are systematically excluded from the development of these
    measures as well as their application in clinical practice. This
    editorial highlights some of these risks and the potential consequences
    of exclusion for these groups.
