outcome domain or domain is closely linked to, or even equates with, the words ‘concept’, ‘attribute’ and ‘construct’ used in the literature.

A domain is like a specific category or area of focus that researchers look at when they’re trying to understand a health condition. For example, if they’re studying a new medicine for arthritis, they might look at different domains like pain, fatigue, and health-related quality of life. Each of these domains represents a different aspect of how the condition affects someone’s life or how well the treatment is working.
