Two-day interactive event on family of Palliative care Outcome Scale (POS) measures and their use in advancing clinical care and research.
 
The POS Workshop 2020 Finalised Programmes are now available 13 Feb Clinical Day and 14 Feb Research Day. Join us to hear about the most recent advances and applications of POS Family of Measures, for lively round table discussions and the launch of the Outcomes Action Collaborative. Site and Registration information is here.
 
The two day 'Outcome Measurement in Palliative Care with POS Family of measures: towards patient-centred care, intervention, services and policy' workshops will be held on 13th and 14th of February 2020 at King's College London, Cicely Saunders Institute (London, UK). The aim of the workshops is to introduce and support the use of the POS family of measures in clinical, research and care settings.
 
During the event, there will be interactive sessions, seminars, Q&A sessions on implementation of POS family of measures for informing care, evaluating interventions, services and influencing policies.
 
Several informative sessions will cover the background, challenges and opportunities of patient centred measurement in clinical practice and research. The attendees will hear about recent experiences from the field, and address administration, scoring, development, validation of the measures including principles of sample selection, analysis and interpretation of data. They will also hear about how outcome data could be used to improve care, understand effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of interventions and services and policy.
 
There will be oral and poster presentations on experiences of utilizing condition specific and integrated versions of the measures across settings, specialities, cultures and countries. If you would like to share your experience of using POS family of measures in your practice and setting, please consider submitting an abstract (by 22nd December 2019) using this form.
 
These interactive workshops are an opportunity to discuss the best ways to implement and integrate POS measures into your clinical practice and research. The workshops are highly relevant to professionals at all levels working in a wide range of palliative and end-of-life care settings (hospice, primary and secondary care, care homes, community services, specialist palliative care, social care) who are already using or planning to use POS or other patient reported outcome measures.
