Understanding outcomes for people with long term conditions
Health and social care policy currently puts considerable emphasis on ‘outcomes’. The new outcomes frameworks for health and social care have at their core patient reported outcome measures (PROMS) and measures of social care-related quality of life. But to what extent do these measures really reflect ‘outcomes’ for people with long-term conditions? How can we make best use of these outcome indicators?What other information do we need to interpret them?
The Department of Health funded policy Research Unit in Quality and Outcomes of person-centred care (QORU) is holding a seminar on 11th January 2013 at LSE to bring 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.
