PRMs Research Collaborative Symposium

The offi­cial launch of the Patient Report­ed Mea­sures (PRMs) Research Col­lab­o­ra­tive was marked by the inau­gur­al PRMs Research Sym­po­sium event on 18 March 2022 at SAHM­RI (South Aus­tralian Health & Med­ical Research Insti­tute) and broad­cast to a vir­tu­al audience.

The true high­light of the Sym­po­sium was the work of our researchers and research teams; sev­en pre­sen­ters pro­vid­ed insight­ful rec­om­men­da­tions to sup­port the con­tin­ued efforts to imple­ment and embed patient report­ed mea­sures across health­care in SA. Empha­sis­ing the vast depth of knowl­edge with­in our research and clin­i­cal com­mu­ni­ty, both local­ly and nation­al­ly, that can enable and strength­en the applied trans­la­tion of patient report­ed mea­sures into clin­i­cal practice. 

From shar­ing knowl­edge on tools avail­able to mea­sure what mat­ters most to patients, through to how to embed infor­ma­tion into rou­tine prac­tice. It drew atten­tion to the impor­tance of how clin­i­cians can respond to infor­ma­tion col­lect­ed to ensure improve­ments in the health and qual­i­ty of life for con­sumers of healthcare. 

The Patient Report­ed Mea­sures Research Col­lab­o­ra­tive is made avail­able by the Com­mis­sion on Excel­lence and Inno­va­tion in Health and Health Trans­la­tion SA.

The Collaborative’s suc­cess is direct­ed by the active par­tic­i­pa­tion and con­tri­bu­tion of its members.
