In Reply We thank Webbe et al for their thoughtful comments on our brief article.1 We are glad they concur with the primary points, in particular, the need for a global set of concise pediatric measures, a focus on outcomes, and the early and frequent inclusion of child, family, and other stakeholder perspectives.
Webbe et al go on to underscore examples from arthritis and neonatology among others. These are exemplary cases of large-scale collaborative work. As such, they represent the best in class for specialty outcomes measurement development.
