  • Introduction to PROMIS, Neuro-QoL and ASCQ-Me (8:30 am - 5:00 pm)
  • This 1-day training is appropriate for researchers and clinicians who are new to HealthMeasures, patient-reported outcomes (PROs), item response theory (IRT), and integrating measures into research and clinical workflows. Participants will receive an overview of three measurement systems (PROMIS, Neuro-QoL and ASCQ-Me) along with an introduction to IRT and computer adaptive tests (CAT). Additional topics will include administration options, the HealthMeasures Scoring Service, free tools and resources available at HealthMeasures.net, and practical considerations for implementation.

  • NIH Toolbox iPad App Training (8:30 am - 5:00 pm)
  • A 1-day, intensive session in which participants will learn how to administer NIH Toolbox performance measures using the NIH Toolbox iPad app. Sessions will teach the basic knowledge and skills to familiarize participants with the administration of the NIH Toolbox iPad app, self- and proxy-report measures of emotional function, and the performance-based tests of cognitive, motor, and sensory function. For this training, an emphasis will be placed on the administration of cognitive tests. Participants are required to bring their own iPad with the NIH Toolbox app installed. To get the app, visit the App Store on your iPad or follow this link.

  • Implementing Patient-Reported Outcomes in Clinical Practice (1:30 pm -  5:00 pm)

  • In this afternoon workshop organizations ranging from academic medical centers to private clinics and low-resource settings will describe how they successfully applied principles from implementation science and organizational transformation to integrate patient-reported outcome measures into clinical practice. Presenters from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, the University of Rochester, Northwestern University and the Instituto Chuquisaqueno de Oncologia (Bolivia), and the University of Washington will address workflow change; provider and staff education; data collection; electronic medical record (EMR) integration; and use of PRO data in shared decision making.
