A growing body of evidence shows that patients who are engaged in their care have better health outcomes and care experiences. This course introduces the use of PROMs as evidence-based interventions to improve patient engagement, physician-patient communication, and quality of care in the primary care setting. Learn the value of collecting outcome data directly from patients, explore PROMs suitable for primary care, and learn key lessons from clinicians that have used PROMs to systematically bring the patient voice into how they provide care. The education and tools were developed based on validated instruments with input from primary care physicians. Use the multiple training formats to engage your entire team in the effort and to lead discussions at your next team meeting and earn PI-CME credit following completion of a quality improvement project.
