Phad 786: Patient Reported Outcomes
Patient-Reported Outcomes (PRO) studies evaluate the impact of disease, medical care, and treatment from the patient’s perspective. The overall objective of this course is to familiarize students with the understanding and application of PRO in health services and outcomes research. The course will involve discussion on PRO topics including quality of life and health-related quality of life, generic and disease- specific PRO instruments, health state preferences (values and utilities), patient satisfaction, measurement issues (including applications of classical test theory, item response theory, Rasch analysis), and adherence to therapy. Principles of measurement, reliability, validity, responsiveness, analysis, and interpretation in the context of PRO measures will also be discussed.
