Administration Guidelines during COVID-19 and Social Distancing
As part of COVID-19 guidelines and social distancing, the HealthMeasures and PROMIS team acknowledge that recommended administration practices may not be possible. In cases where modifications are required to continue data collection (e.g., administration via phone interview), this is allowable at this time. We recommend that the required modification be documented and that each assessment that was done using a modified administration is “flagged” for subsequent analysis.  When shared devices are used, disinfection protocols must be followed.
