Webcast on Presenting Patient-Centered Outcomes Data to Improve Care

sq-Quality-Project-Dispatch v1_0Registration is now open for Presenting Patient-Centered Outcomes Data to Improve Care, the latest webcast from the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s (SCCM) Project Dispatch series. Patient-reported outcome measures and results have become a regular part of healthcare. Clinical trials and other research studies often examine symptoms, quality of life and the impact of a specific health condition and its treatment from the patient’s perspective. This information can be used to inform treatment decisions. In addition, clinics are now routinely asking patients to complete questionnaires and are using this information to help identify and address issues related to patient functioning and well-being. Thus, patient-reported outcome data can be invaluable in managing and tailoring an individual patient’s care. Given the potential to aid both patients and clinicians, it is vital to develop best practices for presenting patient-reported outcome data in a consistent way so that the information is meaningful and useful to patients and clinicians.

Claire Snyder, PhD, from The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, will share her experience in the area of patient-reported outcomes research, as well as early results from her Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute-funded project.  Complimentary registration is made possible by a grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).

  • Present initial results regarding best practices for presenting patient-reported outcome data, as well as key challenges that require further exploration

This 60-minute webcast will take place on Thursday, July 31, 2014, at 12:00 p.m. Central Time.
