Full Title: Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Research to Improve the Interpretation of Patient-Reported Outcomes at the Individual Patient Level for Use in Clinical Practice
Funding Opportunity Purpose from NIH
"interpretation of that report by a clinician, observer, or anyone else. PROs are critical for the support of patient-centered care, as they provide information from the patient’s perspective, and offer important information to improve patient-clinician communication, decision-making, and care delivery. PROs are increasingly being used by clinical stakeholders (e.g., providers, care delivery systems, payers and regulators) to characterize individual patients’ symptoms and functional status and the change in outcomes over time. Thus, PROs are becoming an important piece of information for clinical decision-making, including shared decision-making. The purpose of this Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) is to stimulate research that contributes to the evidence base for precise and accurate PRO score interpretation at the individual patient level for use in clinical practice."
