2014 QORU Seminar

QORU seminar: Using information on quality and outcomes to improve decision-making about care

24 March 2014, 13.30 – 15.30

Venue: London School of Economics and Political Science, Tower 1, G.01

Health and social care policy emphasises ‘outcomes’. Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMS) and measures of social care-related quality of life are collected. But can we use these outcome indicators to best effect? What other information do we need to interpret them?

This Department of Health-funded policy Research Unit in Quality and Outcomes of person-centred care (QORU) seminar brings together interested parties to discuss the use of ‘outcome’ data in practice, and what is needed to ensure that policy-makers and practitioners have access to useful information in the future.
