PROMs Equity Project

While evidence supports the potential effectiveness of patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) in practice, there is a need for unique resources and support to promote PRO use in the context of caring for vulnerable and underserved populations in the United States.

To identify and address these needs, the PROTEUS Consortium is forming an Advisory Group. The Advisory Group will offer an opportunity for bidirectional information exchange to:

  • Improve our understanding of the facilitators of and barriers to implementing routine PRO assessments in vulnerable and underserved populations; and
  • Build capacity for PRO implementation to improve care for cancer patients who are vulnerable or underserved.

The members of the Advisory Group are:

  • Andrea Pusic, MD, PROVE Center at Brigham Health
