Patient Reported Outcome Measures:

valuable information to improve the quality of care

The CORE-MD consortium organised its twelfth webinar on “Patient Reported Outcome Measures” (PROMs) moderated by Prof. Ola Rolfson, from the University of Gothenburg. This webinar is now available for replay.

A research was undertaken to evaluate the potential utility of PROMs in the clinical evaluation and investigation process as well as in the post-market surveillance phase. Professor Ola Rolfson and Professor John Chaplin from Gothenburg University have led this study and presented their findings and recommendations during this webinar.

CORE-MD is a European Union Horizon 2020 project. It reviews methods for evaluating high-risk medical devices in order to translate expert evidence into advice for EU regulators and to recommend an appropriate balance between innovation, safety , and clinical effectiveness.
