2023 ISOQOL Annual Conference

30 Years of ISOQOL: Quality of Life - making it relevant

18-21 October 2023 - Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Over the past 30 years, ISOQOL has made an important impact internationally on the use of PROs in both commercial and academic research. In addition to expanding on this legacy, this year’s conference will focus on identifying the many barriers that limit the use of PROs in day to day patient care and formulate practical solutions to overcome those barriers.

Important Dates

  • 23 January 2023: Workshop and Symposium Abstract Submissions Due

2023 ISOQOL MWM Symposium

Measuring What Matters in Oncology: Translating research into clinical practice using clinical quality registries

Cancers are a leading cause of morbidity and mortality globally. Clinical quality registries (CQRs) are recognized as important tools for monitoring and evaluating quality of care in such diseases by measuring variation from what is considered evidence-based, optimal practice (defined a priori by a consensus process involving clinical experts and consumers). The complementary use of clinical and patient-reported data provide comprehensive assessment of the impact of compliance and through insights into variations between institutions (through benchmarking performance) CQRs provide invaluable opportunities for implementation research.
