2. Symposium - Improving the quality of health care: Engaging the patient voice
3. Masterclass - Integrating PROs into clinical practice
These events will explore the principles and methods for integrating patient-reported outcomes (PROs) into clinical practice. They are designed to help researchers and clinicians understand the ways in which they could implement PRO assessment and use PRO data in their clinical practice.
Professor Claire Snyder 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.
