The health of ISOQOL members and conference attendees is our top priority. The current status of the COVID-19 pandemic and associated global restrictions led ISOQOL leadership to cancel the Measuring What Matters Symposium 2020 as an in-person event. The content will instead be delivered virtually in September. Recordings of the symposium will be archived for future access for registrants unable to attend the live presentations in September.

During these uncertain times, healthcare related research and its impact on patients’ quality of life remains more important than ever. By moving the 2020 MWM Symposium to a virtual format, it is ISOQOL’s intent to keep communication open between all healthcare stakeholders.

To adapt to the virtual platform, workshops have been removed from the program. However, content of the four panel presentations remains the same. The symposium will still be delivered over two days to provide the most engaging virtual experience. 

The International Society for Quality of Life Research (ISOQOL) is a global community of researchers, clinicians, health care professionals, industry professionals, consultants, and patient research partners advancing health related quality of life research (HRQL).

Together, we are creating a future in which patient perspective is integral to health research, care and policy.
