Masterclass with Professor Claire Snyder: Integrating PROs into clinical practice



New Law School Seminar 107, Eastern Avenue The University of Sydney (Camperdown campus)

The Cancer Research Network Patient-Reported Outcomes Special Interest Group (PRO-SIG) invites you to a masterclass by Professor Claire Snyder on 30 November. The workshop is titled Integrating PROs into clinical practice.

Professor Claire Snyder, from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, is internationally recognised for her research on integrating PROs into clinical practice in the oncology setting, including optimal presentation of PRO data to patients and clinicians to facilitate understanding.

This one-day workshop, facilitated by Professor Snyder, will use the International Society for Quality of Life Research Users’ Guide as a framework. Specifically, Professor Snyder will go step-by-step through the process of implementing a PRO assessment intervention in practice covering 9 topics, starting with determining the goals for the PROs; reviewing the decisions regarding population, timing, and measures; describing how to report and act on the PRO data collected; and finally discussing approaches for evaluating the intervention. Lectures will be supplemented with examples and group work.

At the completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
1. Identify the considerations involved in implementing PROs in clinical practice
2. Evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the different options for addressing the considerations
3. Apply available resources to aid in designing a PRO implementation strategy
Who should attend? Researcher and health care providers who want to integrate PRO into clinical practice.
