Register for Patient-Rated Outcome Measures Webinar
NATA
Kenneth Lam, Sc.D., ATC will be presenting "Patient-rated outcome measures in athletic training: which are most appropriate for our patient population?" at 11 a.m. CT on Sept. 19. As athletic training continues to pursue a culture of evidence-based practice, the concept of clinical outcomes assessment (COA) is becoming the centerpiece of many professional initiatives related to education, research, and clinical practice. Vital to COA is the use of patient-rated outcome measures (PROMs) during patient care. Despite the importance of PROMs, most athletic trainers struggle with the process of identifying the most appropriate PROM for patient care. The purpose of this session is to highlight considerations for selecting a PROM, discuss different the types of PROMs, and identify most appropriate PROMs for a highly functional, physically active patient population.
