    Patient-Reported Outcomes in Surgery Conference
    January 29–30, 2015 | Washington, DC

    Understanding the patient perspective on surgical outcomes and experiences

    Learn from world-renowned quality-of-life researchers and surgeons actively using Patient-Reported Outcomes (PRO) in their practices on how you can shape the future of PRO in not just plastic surgery, but all of surgery! This program includes presentations from patient advocates, payers, device industry representatives and regulators. Each panel will be followed by a discussion period that will engage stakeholders in thought-provoking dialogue. The meeting will conclude with a Mentoring Luncheon for faculty and trainees (surgical residents and junior quality of life researchers) to solidify the establishment of cross-disciplinary training relationships.

    Shape the future of PROs in all types of surgery! Together, we can:

    • Identify issues with current PRO measurement
    • Prioritize research goals
    • Create new reporting mechanisms
    • Discuss strategies to make PRO data more accessible and useable to clinicians, patients and payers
