PROMS Conference Thursday 9 June 2016, Sheffield UK
Advances in Patient Reported Outcomes Research and their application to decision making.
The 2016 UK Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) research conference took place on 9 June in Sheffield (#PROMsconf2016). Over 120 participants took part, attending 24 parallel sessions and one poster session of which over 40 posters were displayed. The afternoon was chaired by Professor Ray Fitzpatrick focused on three plenaries with invited speakers and nominated discussants:
– Computerized adaptive testing. Professor Tim Croudace, Dundee (discussant; Dr Chris Gibbons, Cambridge);
– Feedback on PROMs to healthcare providers. Associate Professor Joanne Greenhalgh (discussant: Prof John Browne, Cork);
– Wellbeing. Professor John Brazier, Sheffield (discussant: Colin Green, Exeter).
Feedback informally and formally was positive; the content relevant and interesting and there was considerable enthusiasm for a similar event in 2017.
