In the past decade, the use of Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) has become a prominent topic in healthcare innovation especially in cancer care and in the direct measurement of patients’ experiences with cancer.
Patient Reported outcomes give physicians new insights into various aspects of clinical oncology and provide important information throughout the course of a therapy.1
Implementation of Patient Reported Outcome Measurements in routine chemotherapy was demonstrated to lengthen median survival in metastatic cancer patients. Potential mechanisms of action are that symptoms possibly leading to adverse events were detected and responded to earlier, and that patients could tolerate chemotherapy longer.2
Quality of life for patients with metastatic cancer can significantly improve with adequate treatment of symptoms and side effects.3PROMs are therefore a deciding factor in the delivery of high-quality cancer care.
