Learning Health Network
Increasingly, patient-reported outcome (PRO) measures are being collected to monitor how patients are doing and to inform their care. While evidence supports the potential effectiveness of using PROs in clinical practice, barriers prevent broad implementation.
Our Learning Health Network provides a forum to share experiences and lessons learned regarding the use of PROs in oncology clinical practice across the United States.
The Learning Health Network includes the following project teams:
- Development of a PRO implementation toolkit for radiation oncology, The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, Aileen Chen (Principal Investigator)
- Healthy ME: Advancing Health Equity in Lymphatic Pain and Lymphedema in Black and Hispanic Women with Breast Cancer, Rutgers University, Mei Fu (Principal Investigator)
- Implementing a Care Delivery Model to Improve PRO Guided Care for Patients with Brain Tumors, West Virginia University, Sonikpreet Aulakh (Principal Investigator)
- Testing Two Implementation Strategies in Collecting ePRO among Multiple Myeloma Patients, Thomas Jefferson University, Kuang-Yi Wen (Principal Investigator)
- Oncology pharmacist-facilitated PROM monitoring in UNC cancer clinics, University of North Carolina, Angela Stover and Mary-Haston Vest (Multiple Principal Investigators)
