Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) research conference | The King’s Fund

Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) research conference

Date: 18 Nov 2014
Time: 9.00am-4.30pm
Venue: The King’s Fund, London W1G 0AN
About this event: Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) have developed since their initial introduction into routine use in April 2009 for assessing the outcome and quality of care in the NHS in England for four elective procedures, to being included as part of the NHS Outcomes framework since April 2013 with plans to expand the use of PROMs to additional surgical procedures, to long-term conditions, to mental health care and to dementia care.

This conference will focus on how we can get more value from the large amount of data that is collected. Aimed at researchers, information scientists, clinicians, those involved in quality assessment (national clinical audits), and policy-makers, the conference will:

  • explore the expansion of PROMs to additional surgical procedures, to long-term conditions, to mental health care and to dementia care
  • bring together researchers already involved in PROMs and others interested in contributing to hear about current work and to consider the future research agenda
  • discuss opportunities for greater international collaboration.

This conference is the third annual research conference held on this subject – jointly organised by The King’s Fund and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine – and it will draw together researchers already involved and others interested in contributing to hear about current work and to consider the future research agenda.

In addition to learning about recent and current research in England, similar developments in the USA and Spain will be discussed.

Who is it for: This conference is for all those interested in researching the ways PROMs data can be used to improve the quality of health care, from methodological developments through methods of dissemination of outcomes to implementation of improvement initiatives based on PROMs data.

It will be of interest to researchers, information scientists, those involved in quality assessment (national clinical audits), and policy-makers.
