Archived Summer School: Where the Rubber Meets the Road: PROMs for Clinical Decision-Making

Patient-reported outcome measures are increasingly used to monitor the quality of healthcare services and inform patient-centered decisions at the health system level. However, comparatively little has been done to evaluate the potential for these same data to be used to improve decision-making at the individual patient level. In this seminar, Dr Franklin will share results from her PCORI-funded research where she led the design of a patient-clinician decision report that includes predicted patient outcomes based on national data. Dr. Bansback will describe the development and testing of tailored PROMs-based patient decision aid aimed to help patients with osteoarthritis of the knee consider whether to have joint replacement surgery.
