Have you ever had to have a box constantly strapped to your chest that shows from under your clothes, sleep in a helmet, and answer the same question every day for 365 days? How would that make you feel? How likely would you be to do it?

The 2021 Measuring What Matters Symposium will include presentations from speakers describing how, through understanding the patient experience, we can select more practical measurement tools that can lead to data of better quality, while minimizing patient burden.
