Clinical Outcome Assessment

Section: 

There is growing interest in clinical outcomes assessments, such as patient-reported outcomes, and patient-centeredness across the healthcare ecosystem. For example, in 2019, the Food and Drug Administration will release two new guidance documents on clinical outcome assessment. The NHC seeks to ensure that the NHC membership is prepared to engage in conversations about clinical outcome assessment. We will post information about upcoming and past webinars, along with in-person meetings and other resources on this page. If you would like to suggest a topic, please submit one.

FDA’s Roadmap to Patient-Focused Outcome Measurement in Clinical Trials

Dec. 7, 2018 - In patient-centered research and care, we focus on the outcomes most important to patients. Often, patients tell us that what is most important to them is how they feel and how well they function in their everyday lives. To capture data on these outcomes in clinical trials, measures must first be developed. This webinar introduces participants to a document, the Roadmap, developed by the Clinical Outcome Assessment (COA) team at the Food and Drug Administration. The Roadmap helps researchers develop tools that measure outcomes that matter most to patients.

Patient Reported Outcomes and Patient Centered Outcomes

Nov. 7, 2018 - In patient-centered research and care, we focus on the outcomes most important to patients. Often, patients tell us that what is most important to them is how they feel and how well they function in their everyday lives. These outcomes are referred to in research as patient-reported outcomes or PROs. So, what is the difference between a patient-centered outcome and a patient-reported outcome? Are they the same? The answer is: No, they are not the same! In this webinar, presented by Dr. Eleanor Perfetto, you will learn about the difference between patient-centered outcomes and patient-reported outcomes, and why we need patient-centered PROs in research and care.
