ORS Spine Section
Sally LiArno, PhD, Stryker Orthopaedics
Saeed Khayatzadeh, PhD, Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital
Patient-Reported-Outcome-Measures (PROMs) or Patient-Reported-Outcomes (PRO) assess the quality of care delivered to patients from the patient perspective. PRO questionnaires can be used to assess many factors including symptoms, functioning, health status, general health perceptions, quality of life, and activity level. This workshop focuses on how PROMs calculate the health gains after orthopaedic surgical treatment using pre- and post-operative surveys.
