He is Chair of the Specialist Pain Faculty at the Royal College of Chiropractors promoting evidence informed care amongst the membership.
The Care Response system he has developed is a pragmatic electronic patient reported outcome and satisfaction (ePROM/PREM) tool designed to help real world clinical practices gather, collate and report PROMs/PREMs with minimal interference with clinic work flow. Care Response is entirely free for clinical use and is supported and promoted by the Royal College of Chiropractors and the European Chiropractic Union with national trials starting Canada and Norway.
Patients reports of outcome in improving and growing clinical practices
Increasingly the routine collection of patients reports of changes in their outcome and experiences (PROMs/PREMs) with care is being recommended by guidelines and service purchasers. This seminar will report on recent research into the utility of PROM/PREM in improving health outcomes and shared decision making with patients as well as demonstrating and promoting the effectiveness of clinics services.
