The assessment of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is very challenging because of the multifaceted nature of the clinical presentations, complexity of the symp- toms and their variation over time. Outcome Measures in Rheumatology (OMERACT) rec- ommended the assessment of disease activity, chronic damage resulting from lupus activity or its treatment, adverse events of drugs, health-related quality of life and eco- nomic impact. The use of instruments is essential for a standardized assessment of the disease domains. For this purpose, several instruments have been developed and vali- dated, and have been used in clinical settings and research. Here, we review these in- struments and provide an update on the recent developments in the field.
