Attendees said:   The best part of the conference was...

I gained knowledge in best practices in interpreting PROMIS, particularly in how to utilize PROMIS Global Health for routine practice.

Oral paper presentation sessions allowed me to learn about several research initiatives all related to a similar theme within a brief period of time.

The value placed on clinical implementation and taking the theoretical and moving to routine practice.

My one-on-one talk with a mentor.

Seeing colleagues in-person to learn of their progress and contributions to making PROMIS a more widely used system to measure patient care.
