Q&A with Sharyn

What inter­est­ed you about patient report­ed mea­sures research and/​or projects?

The abil­i­ty for patient report­ed infor­ma­tion to dri­ve change in the safe and effi­cient deliv­ery of health­care sys­tems and process­es in a way that is accept­able to all parties.

What is your biggest achieve­ment in rela­tion to patient report­ed mea­sures research, or the appli­ca­tion of research into practice?

Still ear­ly days in my organ­i­sa­tion — look­ing more at expe­ri­ence than out­come mea­sures at this point.

How do you approach col­lab­o­ra­tion with con­sumers, car­ers and com­mu­ni­ty? Or how do think we can work togeth­er to keep mak­ing advance­ments in this space?

I think we need to under­stand how infor­ma­tive and valu­able the consumer/​carer/​community voice is in improv­ing our approach to health­care. Equal sta­tus around the table’ from the begin­ning; true co-design principle.
