In March 2019, the NOA and Northumbria Healthcare NHSFT hosted a workshop focussed on building a National PROMs Network – a space where member organisations can share experience and best practice around getting the most from PROMs.
The workshop was a stimulating day with great discussions from orthopaedic providers from across the country, and guest speakers from organisations such as NHS Digital. We are now working to create sub groups of the wider network that will focus on the below areas:
- Which PROMs to collect
- The current processes for collating PROMs
- The development of open source software for the collection and analysis of PROMs data
- The analyses and uses of PROMs data
The aim of these groups is to help us all reach a consensus on the standardisation of PROMs. If you attended the meeting, you should have received details of how to register your interest in joining a group. if you would like to find out more or want to get involved, get in touch and help us change PROMs for the better.
