    Choosing a Patient-Reported Outcome Measure.Leah M. McClimans & John Browne - 2011 - Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 32 (1):47-60.
    There has been much philosophical interest regarding the ‘hierarchy of evidence’ used to determine which study designs are of most value for reporting on questions of effectiveness, prognosis, and so on. There has been much less philosophical interest in the choice of outcome measures with which the results of, say, an RCT or a cohort study are presented. In this paper, we examine the FDA’s recently published guidelines for assessing the psychometric adequacy of patient-reported outcome measures. We focus on their (...)

    The Art of Asking Questions.Leah M. McClimans - 2011 - International Journal of Philosophical Studies 19 (4):521 - 538.
    Abstract In this paper I discuss how we should distinguish legitimate from illegitimate questions. I will argue that we should not make such distinctions prior to asking our questions; that questioning is more of an art than a science and that this art is part of the art of conversation in general. Nonetheless, the desire to limit in advance the questions that we can legitimately ask is not infrequent. In the philosophy of science this ambition manifests in response to concerns (...)
