Several recently published investigations have examined the relationship between the magnitude of the standard error of measurement (SEM) and established thresholds for a minimal clinically important difference (MCID) or a minimal important difference (MID) for change scores on health-related quality of life (HRQOL) or health status measures. These investigations, however, have resulted in differing SEM criteria for the MCID or MID. This study reviews and compares two sets of studies: (1) three… CONTINUE READING
