Scottish Cancer PROMs Forum Meeting
Date and Time: Friday 1st Dec 2023 at 10am – 12:30pm
Location: Online (MS Teams Webinar)
The SC PROMs Forum is a collaborative space for anyone to contribute and learn about Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs), and to discuss how PROMs can be collected as part of routine care to better understand and manage the impact that cancer and treatments have on quality of life.
The Forum helps support the Scottish Cancer PROMs Advisory Group in creating and sharing the PROMs Core Principles: guidelines for healthcare professionals, decision makers and digital companies when planning how to collect PROMs as part of routine care. The 10 Core Principles have been endorsed by Scottish Government. At the event we will share the Core Principles and get your insight into how we can best encourage their uptake.
Location: Technology and Innovation Centre, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow
