Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROM) are increasingly being used to drive patient-centred care and decision making in health care. Occupational therapy has a long history of including patients' voices in outcome measurement. This webinar will provide participants with an overview of PROMs and describe how the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure is used and can be used as a PROM. 

Learning Objectives:

  • To understand what a Patient Reported Outcome Measure is and how it is used in the health system. 
  • To describe the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure.
  • To identify the COPM as a PROM.
