Patient Report Outcomes (PROs): patients should not only share their voice but co-create


Patient Reported Outcomes  (PROs) exist but should be improved, standardized and used more than has been done so far, in order to optimize their role in measuring the impact of research and healthcare in patients' lives.


This is the picture of the Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs) emerging from the review published on Current Opinion in Neurology by Paola Zaratin, Director of Scientific Research of FISM and Giampaolo Brichetto, Coordinator of reasearch in rehabilitation at Italian MS Foundation (FISM) and Director of AISM Rehabilitation Center in Genova.


It is crucial to take the opportunity, the authors explain, to reflect and open a discussion on the importance to integrate health status reported by people with MS into research and treatment paths. Even more if this is done from a privileged point of view, they underline: via a multi-stakeholder organizational models.
