eTools for pruritus

Measurement of pruritus and pruritic diseases includes disease-specific tools (e.g. EASI, SCORAD for atopic eczema, PASI for psoriasis) and a patient-reported outcome, in particular quality of life as measured by DLQI or ItchyQoL. A single itch NRS is also recommended.

Patient needs and therapeutic benefits can be measured by PBI.
