Purpose, functionality and reconceptualization of Patient-Reported Outcome (PRO) - a patient participation perspective

Project Details


The research project examines the purpose, functionality and conceptualization of patient-reported outcome (PRO) in a patient participation perspective. The connection between PRO and patient participation is investigated via a comprehensive scoping review and ethnographic methods. Patients participation is examined between outpatient consultations, and during patient-provider-consultations, hence the study aims to capture a wide range of aspects concerning PRO and patient participation. Besides patient participation, concepts like patient recognition, patient empowerment and digitalization are focal.
