    A growing body of evidence shows that patients who are engaged in their care have better health outcomes and care experiences. This course introduces the use of patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) as evidence-based interventions to improve patient engagement, physician-patient communication, and quality of care in the primary care setting.

    • Define patient-reported outcomes, recognize the difference between traditional measures and PROMS, and understand the importance of PROMs in improving patient care
    • Identify PROMs suitable for use in a primary care practice
    • Learn how to successfully implement a PROM

    The education and tools were developed based on validated instruments with input from family physicians. Use slide decks, speaker notes, and downloadable tools to engage your entire team in the effort and lead team training. Earn PICME credit following completion of a quality improvement project.
