Application: Clinical Care Applications

Abstracts in this category include reports of efforts to integrate the patient’s voice more effectively into clinical encounters. Examples include descriptions of experiences implementing a standardized PRO collection system in a single clinic, reports of the development of a streamlined questionnaire battery for patients to complete prior to visits, and efforts to develop better reports for clinicians of patients’ PRO data over time. It is expected that abstracts in this category are more descriptive in nature with limited sample sizes. Larger and/or randomized studies should be categorized as Clinical Research.
