Patient-Reported Outcomes (PROs) in Cancer Care LIVE

July 8, 2020

Dr. Angela Stover will discuss Patient Reported Outcomes (PRO) reporting within the oncology setting. PRO reporting involves receiving information directly from patients and permitting healthcare professionals to treat the whole patient through personal assessments of symptoms and of daily health status. She will emphasize PROs outside the clinic and will then report on the pilot ePRO rollout at UNC Health Care (where PROs are collected in the clinic).

Target Audience

These courses are intended for medical, radiation, and surgical oncologists, hematologists, advanced practice nurses, registered nurses, physician assistants, radiologic technologists, researchers, pharmacists, trainees, allied health personnel, and others who are interested in care for patients and survivors in North Carolina.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe what patient reported outcomes (PROs) are and how are they used in cancer care
  • Describe the clinical outcomes PROs can improve when completed remotely outside the clinic (at home) and in clinic
  • Discuss the application of PROS via an implementation case study at NC Cancer Hospital
