About the 2017 PROMs Research Conference

Following the success of last year’s inaugural conference at Sheffield, the second annual UK & Ireland PROMs Research Conference was held at St Anne’s College, Oxford on 8th June 2017.

This one-day conference included a mixture of plenary sessions, oral presentations and posters by PROMs researchers from across the UK and Ireland. This unique event brought together leading experts and early career researchers to engage with the latest advances in the field of PROMs research and implementation. 

A message from the organisers

THANK YOU to all who attended the 2nd annual UK & Ireland PROMs research conference. The venue was at capacity and we were inspired by the range and high quality of work presented by colleagues across the country. We were especially encouraged by the higher numbers of PhD students presenting their work, a trend that we hope continues at future PROMs conferences.

Colleagues at the University of Birmingham are seeking funds to host next year’s conference. Keep an eye out for announcements about it later this year. 

The conference couldn’t have been such a success without all of you: reviewers, presenters, session chairs, judges for prizes, and engaged session attendees. Thank you, and see you next year!
