Patient-Reported Outcomes (PROs) in Cancer Care SPOC

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).
