Register today to attend Measuring What Matters, a symposium focused on patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) in child health. Scheduled for 18-19 July 2022, this virtual event will consist of session presentations and live Q&As with the speakers. Recordings of the symposium will be archived for future access for registrants unable to attend the live presentations in July.
The registration deadline is 11 July 2022. More information about the symposium’s theme, registration rates, schedule and sessions is available below.
There are many challenges that arise in the use of patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) in pediatric populations. These include age and developmental differences, response shift associated with developmental changes and illness trajectories, identifying the best informant(s) (the child, a parent/caregiver, healthcare professional), and understanding what concepts are important to children and at what age they can reliably self-report. The aim of this symposium is to provide a forum to share and debate current conceptualizations of quality of life in children, methodological and operational challenges commonly encountered in measurement and best practice methods for addressing these.
