Patients, providers, payers, and regulators increasingly demand evidence signifying the real differences new health care interventions make to people’s lives. Patient-reported outcome (PRO) data is critical for demonstrating the impact of interventions on how a patient feels and functions.
Patient-reported outcomes (e.g., fatigue, pain, physical functioning, social functioning) can provide great value to research, but can present significant challenges.
Do you need to know how to conceptualize, develop, and evaluate PROs so you can effectively incorporate them into your clinical research?
Enjoy a thorough deep-dive into the different types and suitability of measures, methods for developing new measures, and best practices for collecting and analyzing PROs in clinical trials.
This training includes a friendly introduction to the technical aspects of Classical Test Theory and Item Response Theory for the evaluation of the psychometric properties of a PRO measure and incorporates the latest recommendations from the FDA and other regulatory bodies in the design and application of PRO measures.
After the program, you’ll be able to take advantage of the great value PROs brings to research as well as understand how to overcome its significant challenges.
