Upcoming Webinars:

Using PROMs for Screening and Diagnostic Purposes

11 July 2018
10:00 AM CDT - 11:00 AM CDT
*Registration closes 8 July 2018 at 11:59 PM CDT.

At the conclusion of the webinar participants will have an understanding of the current state of evidence on the use of PROMs for diagnostic and screening purposes. They will also gain insights into research gaps and potential challenges for using PROMs for these purposes. 


There is a growing body of evidence on the use of PROMs in clinical practice and its impact on processes and outcomes of care. However, evidence on the use of these tools for screening and diagnostic purposes is limited. In this webinar, we intend to provide an overview of the indications/ advantages of using PROMs for screening and diagnostic purposes, provide examples of using specific measures for these purposes, and discuss the implications and challenges of using PROMs for these purposes.   

 Learning Objectives:

After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Understand why and how PROMs could be used as screening or diagnostic tools.
  • Identify a research gap and potential research question to add to the body of evidence and further the discussion on the use of PROMs for these purposes.
