Introducing Electronic Quality of Life Assessments in Palliative Care
Mar 26, 2018 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
700-828 W. 10 Ave., VGH Research Pavilion
Quality of life (QOL) assessment instruments, including patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) and patient-reported experience measures (PREMs), are increasingly being promoted as a means for enhancing person-centred care. However, their integration into palliative care clinical practice has been inconsistent. This presentation will focus on lessons learned from a research initiative on the user-centered design and integration of an electronic Quality of Life and Practice Support System (QPSS) for the use of PROMs and PREMs in palliative inpatient and home care settings.
- To describe desirable technological features of a QPSS from the perspectives of patients, family caregivers, and clinicians
- To consider experiences with technology, use in clinical practice, and health care organizational context when introducing a QPSS at point of care.
- To understand practice tensions shaping clinicians’ use of PROMs and PREMs in palliative care
