Map and Directions

The HealthMeasures team at Northwestern University will present an introduction to item response theory (IRT), Computer Adaptive Testing (CAT), the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS), and how to access and administer PROMIS measures. The morning focuses on introducing attendees to IRT, CAT, and PROMIS. In the afternoon, we will focus on options and best practices in administering PROMIS measures, including in research and integrating into clinical workflows.

On Wednesday, December 6, the HealthMeasures team will also host a one-day NIH Toolbox® Training Workshop. If you are interested in learning about PROMIS and the NIH Toolbox, you are invited to register for both trainings. Click here for more information on the NIH Toolbox® Training Workshop.

The cost is $250 for the PROMIS Training and $250 for the NIH Toolbox® Training Workshop, or we will offer a $400 discounted package if you register for both the PROMIS and NIH Toolbox® Training Workshops. Registration includes continental breakfast and afternoon snacks on each day. To learn more about the NIH Toolbox® Training Workshop, click here.
