A Look at 2022

The PROMIS Training Workshop, May 12-13, 2022 (virtual). Designed for both new PROMIS users and those experienced with PROMIS, the workshop presented a strong practical focus on selecting, using, applying, and interpreting PROMIS measures in the clinical setting.

The 8th Annual PROMIS International Conference, October 23-24, 2022, Prague. The in-person research-focused conference, with great plenaries, oral poster sessions, posters, poster walk, and roundtables, will offer learning, engagement and networking for researchers and clinicians from around the world.

Webinars and Roundtables held year-round for members and the larger PROMIS community offer sessions to learn more about PROMIS in research and clinical care. Foundational topics (such as IRT, CAT, PROMIS theory) have been offered, as well as sessions on clinical implementation of PROMIS with case studies on implementation. Members have free 24/7 access to recorded webinars.

The website is the touch-point for information on PHO activities, educational opportunities, organization information, and resources for both members and non-members.

PHO e-News, the monthly communication vehicle for members and the broader PROMIS community, provides information and updates on educational offerings.

Technology Infrastructure of the PHO was upgraded in 2020 with redesign of the website and transition to a new association management system to increase efficiencies for membership administration and event registration.
