Monday Lunch Livestream with Associate Professor Karla Gough

Patient-reported outcome (PRO) systems in routine clinical care: key steps in the roadmap to implementation.

Learn about the VCCC's groundbreaking study, and meaningful involvement of consumers, in the identification of PRO system requirements, a key first step in the road to PRO implementation in routine clinical care.

In the final Monday Lunch Livestream for 2020 hear from Associate Professor Karla Gough, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and the University of Melbourne, and co-project lead of the study. Karla will provide insights into the roadmap to support the development and implementation of PRO systems in VCCC alliance clinical institutions.

Her presentation will focus on the main objectives and outputs of the study, including examples relevant to real-world settings and stakeholders, with opportunity for discussion.

This project was sponsored by the VCCC Building Connectivity Program and was a collaboration developed by key alliance project leads and in consultation with the VCCC Cancer Consumer Advisory Committee.
