Developing an Observer-Reported Outcomes Measure (ObsRO)

Presented by

Beverly Romero, MA, Senior Outcomes Researcher, ICON Clinical Outcomes Assessments

About this talk

Using a case study approach, webinar participants will learn more about developing ObsROs and implementing them in clinical studies. We’ll discuss some of the key challenges faced in developing and using an ObsRO, along with potential solutions. While capturing treatment benefit from the patient’s perspective is often important in clinical research, it is not always possible to do so directly through a patient-reported outcomes measure (PRO). This may be due to the patient’s condition (e.g., severe mental impairment) or because of the patient’s age (e.g., young children). In these cases, an observer-reported outcomes measure (ObsRO) may be used to gain information about the patient from the observations of a caregiver. Key insights: - What is an ObsRO, and when is it appropriate to use one? - What are best practices for developing an ObsRO? - What are some of the key challenges in ObsRO development and possible solutions? - What are some of the key considerations for implementing an ObsRO in a clinical study? Speakers: Beverly Romero, MA, Senior Outcomes Researcher, ICON Clinical Outcomes Assessment; Emuella Flood, Senior Principal, ICON Clinical Outcomes Assessment
