Electronic Validation of FACE-Q

FACE-Q PSF Research

Project Title: Electronic Validation of FACE-Q

Principal Investigator: Andrea Pusic, MD, MS

Clinical Coordinating Center: The Plastic Surgery Foundation

Project Description: The objective of this research, led by Andrea Pusic, MD, of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, is to develop and validate an online FACE-Q survey. FACE-Q is a clinically useful, patient-reported outcome measure (PROM) of satisfaction and quality of life following elective surgical and non-surgical facial rejuvenation. The FACE-Q is intended to be easily incorporated in routine clinical practice to measure procedural outcomes. The FACE-Q will provide an important tool with which researchers and clinicians may evaluate the success of various facial aesthetic procedures from a patient perspective. This instrument currently is administered in a paper-pencil version (FACE-Q.org). Efforts are ongoing for validation of an electronic version of FACE-Q.

Status: Pilot Site Data Collection to begin in Late 2014
