Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) research conference | 18 Nov 2014 | The King’s Fund

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.
