PRO Forum taking place in Philadelphia

PRO Forum in PhiladelphiaA patient reported outcome (PRO) measure is a broad term describing any measurement about the patient's health that has come directly from the patient - anything from multidimensional questionnaires assessing health-related quality of life to assessments of single symptoms.

As regulatory agencies increase their support of PRO measures in clinical trials as a basis for submissions, PRO data is becoming an increasingly important part of regulatory submissions. And because PRO measures need to convey the same meaning in each target language, they place unique demands on translation service providers.

The upcoming 5th Patient Reported Outcomes Conference (to be held on November 17 and 18, 2009, in Philadelphia) promises to be an excellent event for health economic staff at sponsor companies and medical translation service providers alike. The agenda is filled with hands-on workshops and expert presentations.

ForeignExchange will be at the PRO Forum. If you are attending, please stop by and introduce yourself as a blog reader. We hope to see you in Philly!
