Conference Theme

2020 THE FUTURE IS NOW: A Vision for the Future of Outcomes Measurement and Quality of Life Research

The year 2020 is commonly used by science-fiction writers to make predictions about the future. Similarly, the ISOQOL 2020 annual conference provides an ideal opportunity for the ISOQOL community to look forward. The 2020 conference in Prague will focus on important developments in collecting, analyzing, interpreting and disseminating patient-centered outcomes data, with an emphasis on what the future might look like for current and future generations of outcomes and quality of life researchers.
