Patient-Reported Outcomes (PRO) are playing an important role in determining the health status of tumor patients. They are used to measure the health conditions of patients in many aspects (physical, mental, social) and they are utilized for a wide range of purposes from clinical trials to everyday care to health-services research.
Our core unit works on the electronic collection of patient-reported outcomes. PROs should be of immediate use for health care professionals and directly integrated in medical practice. In close cooperation with other departments and institutions we conduct studies that evaluate, develop and use patient-reported outcomes and promote their implementation in healthcare practice.
