Conference theme:
Assessment, action, and accountability: Achieving optimal patient-centered outcomes through quality of life research

Healthcare providers in the US, Europe, and elsewhere are increasingly being held accountable for the outcomes of the patients they treat. Central to the concept of accountability is a thorough understating of the role of patient-reported outcome measures in healthcare delivery. In the absence of patient-reported outcomes, healthcare providers and oversight agencies must rely on other metrics such as emergency department visits, re-hospitalization, complications, and mortality. Engagement with patients and other key stakeholders is critical to ensuring the outcomes measured are patient-centered. ISOQOL is uniquely positioned to contribute to this international discussion to advance theory, methods, and application of quality of life research in the pursuit of optimal patient-centered outcomes.
