Redefining boundaries – breaking new ground in patient-centered outcomes research
ISOQOL is optimistically planning to hold the 29th Annual Conference in Prague from 19-22 October 2022. The ISOQOL Board of Directors will assess the feasibility of an in-person meeting early next Spring 2022. If anything changes, it will be announced to abstract submitters and ISOQOL membership at that time.

Measuring What Matters in Child Health: Challenges, Developments and Opportunities
There are many challenges that arise in the use of patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) in pediatric populations. These include age and developmental differences, response shift associated with developmental changes and illness trajectories, identifying the best informant(s) (the child, a parent/caregiver, healthcare professional), and understanding what concepts are important to children and at what age they can reliably self-report. The aim of this symposium is to provide a forum to share and debate current conceptualizations of quality of life in children, methodological and operational challenges commonly encountered in measurement and best practice methods for addressing these.
Journal of Patient-Reported Outcomes operates a double-blind peer-review system and further details are available in our peer review policy. If you are new to peer review, you can read an overview of the peer review process and its benefits. Also, please see resources for reviewers, including training and tutorials, and information about receiving recognition for your involvement.
