5th National Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) Annual Research Conference - CALL FOR ABSTRACTS NOW OPEN

The Y&H ARC Health Economics, Equality and Evaluation theme is hosting the 5th National Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) Annual Research Conference will return in June 2021 as a virtual event.

Due to the generosity of our sponsors we are fully funding delegate places to acknowledge the difficulties our institutions and organisations are currently facing during the Covid-19 pandemic.

We will have a mixture of plenary sessions, workshops, oral presentations and posters by PROMs researchers from across the UK and internationally. Our event will bring together leading experts and early career researchers to engage with the latest advances in the field of PROMs research and implementation.
