  • Location: Sheffield, S11 9PX
  • Date: 26 Mar 2018
  • Address: Clifford House, St Luke's Hospice

A one day event for palliative and end of life care commissioners and providers working in hospices, acute hospitals and NHS community settings, who are either using or introducing outcome measures into clinical practice. 

Focussing on the use and application of patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) in clinical practice, and in particular the OACC (Outcome Assessment and Complexity Collaborative) suite of measures, the conference will showcase new evidence demonstrating the impact of utilising PROMs in palliative care, offer practical solutions to support integration into practice, and outline how intelligence gathered can be used to demonstrate the impact of services to commissioners and stakeholders.

Through interactive sessions, participants will share knowledge and experiences of using OACC and PROMs, and contribute towards the development of a community of practice that supports implementation of PROMs into everyday practice.

This event is a collaboration between Hospice UK, St Luke's Hospice Sheffield, the Cicely Saunders Institute at King's College London and the Wolfson Palliative Care Research Centre, University of Hull.
