In this white paper, we present the benefits of collecting and using Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) in routine cancer care and follow-up, relying on scientific literature.
We also introduce a framework for defining a PROM collection protocol and applying it in practice. While the scope of this paper is limited to cancer care, many of the points raised here are general in nature, and may apply in other specialties, too.
Read the full white paper to learn how PROMs as part of routine clinical care:
- increase patient satisfaction with care,
- improve patient-provider communication,
- improve overall quality of life,
- improve symptom management,
- lead to less frequent hospitalization and admission to the ER,
- enable longer continuation of chemotherapy, and
- better survival rates for cancer patients.
