This ISPOR Australia workshop will bring together leading experts and decision makers in the use of patient reported outcomes data to inform health care decision making. The workshop will be led by Prof Nancy Devlin (Uni of Melbourne) and Dr. Nick Bansback (Uni of British Columbia), and chaired by Brendan Mulhern (UTS). Other expert speakers include Prof Rosalie Viney (UTS), Prof Kirsten Howard (Uni of Sydney), and Scott Brydon (BMS), with others TBC.
The workshop will consider how Australia can learn from international experiences in the implementation of routine PRO collection for use in health care decision making. An overview of PROMs initiatives in public and private health care systems around the world will be provided, with a focus on the challenges encountered. We will then consider how PROs can be useful for the patients who are completing them (including clinical management, shared decision making, and long-term care) and how this in turn can improve the quality and response rates of PRO data.
This will be followed by a discussion of different perspectives on the use of PRO data in decision making. A major focus of this will be on the advantages and disadvantages of the use of PRO data in HTA decision making, including academic, industry and decision-maker perspectives. The final session will be a panel discussion of the main issues raised through the day, followed by a networking event.
