Get ready for the next PRMs Research Symposium, focusing on the “Practicalities of PRMs”

25 Sept 2023

Based on the over­whelm­ing­ly pos­i­tive feed­back fol­low­ing the sym­po­siums run in 2022, the PRMs Research Col­lab­o­ra­tive Sym­po­sium is back and is a must-attend event for any­one inter­est­ed in the lat­est devel­op­ments in Patient Report­ed Mea­sures (PRMs).

This year’s theme is Prac­ti­cal­i­ties of PRMs — Imple­men­ta­tion, Col­lec­tion Meth­ods and Report­ing’ and the sym­po­sium will fea­ture a keynote address by Asso­ciate Pro­fes­sor Gab­by Cehic, a nuclear med­i­cine physi­cian (oncol­o­gist) and Clin­i­cal Lead at the South Aus­tralian Pep­tide Recep­tor Radionu­clide Ther­a­py (PRRT) Service. 

Gab­by will share her insights on the imple­men­ta­tion of a data reg­istry for patients with Neu­roEn­docrine Neo­plasms (NENs) who receive PRRT, which includes an online sur­vey tool for the dig­i­tal entry of spe­cif­ic val­i­dat­ed PROMs EORTC QLQ 30 (gen­er­al can­cer PROM) and GiNET 21 (dis­ease spe­cif­ic PROM). 

In addi­tion to the keynote address, the sym­po­sium will fea­ture pre­sen­ta­tions from a vari­ety of experts in the field of PRMs, cov­er­ing top­ics such as: 

  • Tools and meth­ods for col­lect­ing PRMs 
  • Bar­ri­ers and enablers to imple­men­ta­tion and collection 
  • Ways to analyse and utilise PRMs in a prac­ti­cal set­ting to improve out­comes and expe­ri­ences for consumers.

The PRMs Research Col­lab­o­ra­tive is a joint ini­tia­tive from the Com­mis­sion on Excel­lence and Inno­va­tion in Health (CEIH) and Health Trans­la­tion SA (HTSA). The Collaborative’s pur­pose is to build a pro­fes­sion­al net­work of peo­ple with exper­tise and inter­est in PRMs research and to pro­mote oppor­tu­ni­ties that will fos­ter part­ner­ship and col­lab­o­ra­tion in the health system.

For this sym­po­sium, the CEIH and HTSA have part­nered with mem­bers of the Col­lab­o­ra­tive to organ­ise and select the theme of this year’s the event based on feed­back pro­vid­ed by atten­dees at the Novem­ber 2022 Sym­po­sium. The feed­back showed that mem­bers of the Col­lab­o­ra­tive were keen to under­stand how PRMs have been imple­ment­ed in a clin­i­cal set­ting to sup­port the deliv­ery of val­ue-based healthcare.
