This was the 6th National PROMs Research Conference and due to ongoing uncertainty caused by Covid-19, the event was virtual, as it was in 2021. We were delighted to host the conference on the 14th and 15th June 2022.
The conference included plenary sessions, expert panels, oral presentations and posters from PROMs researchers across the UK and beyond. An established event, the conference brought together leading experts, career researchers, early career scientists and interested parties from other areas, to engage with the latest developments in the field of PROMs research and implementation.
The call for abstract submissions went out in late January 2022 and by the end of March, we had received 64 submissions. These submissions were then scored by members of the Scientific Committee, with the top scoring 16 submissions invited to present orally, and the remainder invited to provide a digital poster to include in the conference proceedings.
All submitted poster presentations are still available to view here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1RsbOLsYCMm_ohcYCmW8JNXmFPXY4z6_D?usp=sharing
The conference offered five prizes which were judged and awarded as follow:
