At Modus Outcomes, education and training in research methods is high on our agenda. On Monday, July 13, our own Dr. Stefan Cano will be lecturing on the history, application, and comparison of psychometric methods as part of Harvard Medical School’s 10-lecture patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) Summer School program. He will be explaining why the rising profile of PROMs has significant implications for scale construction, evaluation, and selection. Focusing on psychometric methods, he will make the case for why modern psychometric methods have significant clinical advantages over traditional approaches and should be considered for inclusion in everyday practice.

The PROMs Summer School is being held at the Patient-Reported Outcomes, Value and Experience (PROVE) Center at Brigham Health. The Center was created by Dr. Andrea Pusic, Joseph E Murray Professor of Surgery, Chief of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and co-developer of Q-Portfolio PROMs. The center is focused on PROMs, patient experience, and value-based surgery in patients throughout Brigham Health.
