10 November 2011
PenCLAHRC, a NHS/university health education partnership in Devon and Cornwall, is hosting an academic seminar on patient outcomes in chronic fatigue syndrome, 14 November.
Dr Kirstie Haywood, University of Warwick, will ask attending professionals, "How well are we measuring patient outcomes in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?"
The PenCLAHRC website says the seminar will "explore the findings from a systematic review and evaluation of the quality and acceptability of patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) used in the assessment of adults with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS/M.E.). The application of an appraisal framework will be discussed. The results will be considered in the context of growing interest in PROMs within the healthcare arena."
