IHSPR Policy Rounds – Patient-Reported Health Outcomes Measurement

Patient-Reported Health Outcomes Measurement

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013
11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. EDT

Join us for our first webinar!

Featuring research supported by CIHR’s Evidence-Informed Healthcare Renewal Roadmap Signature Initiative

Join us as we share the results of an Expedited Knowledge Synthesis about generic PROMs in primary health care.


  • Stirling Bryan, PhD - Director, Centre for Clinical Epidemiology & Evaluation University of British Columbia
  • Richard Sawatzky, Canada Research Chair in Patient-Reported Outcomes, Trinity Western University & Centre for Health Evaluation and Outcome Sciences, Providence Health Care
  • Barbara Korabek, Assistant Deputy Minister of the Health Authorities Division, British Columbia Ministry of Health


  • Understand patient health outcomes measurement with PROMs instruments in primary health care integration.
  • Learn important PROM instruments characteristics to inform successful primary health care integration.
  • Recognize the opportunities and challenges of integration and utilization of PROMs.
  • Share PROMs best practices and questions.

Why do PROMs matter?

Patient-reported outcome measurement plays an increasingly important role in health care as it allows patients to provide information that is needed to assess the effects and quality of care from their point of view. Data from patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) represents important information for clinical care (e.g., assessing health status and patient need), quality improvement and evaluation, and research (e.g., studying the effectiveness of an intervention).

Who should attend?

Researchers, policy makers, health care professionals and interested health system stakeholders.
