This years conference season is about to begin and I’d like to announce the following contributions our group makes:
ISOQOL Felix Fischer, “Positive and negative predictive values for continuous test scores”, Brief Oral, on Demand
The COST Action HARMONY, devoted to make statistical tools for test evaluation and disease prevalence estimation more accessible, does some training schools (online and hybrid) over the summer. Check it out here.
Our new study introducing the Health Outcomes Observatory (H2O), a multi-jurisdictional ecosystem to incorporate patient-reported and other health outcomes into health care decision-making across Europe, is out!
Leaders at the European Union’s Innovative Medicines Initiative are developing a large-scale multi-stakeholder international ecosystem to incorporate patient-reported outcomes and measures to improve patient engagement and drive value.
The DEPRESSD Team is planning to host a series of webinars for project collaborators and other interested researchers and clinicians.
The first webinar will cover the topic: Addressing overestimation of prevalence based on self-report questionnaires: Are there cost-effective alternatives?
Carl Falk from McGill University in Montreal, Canada and I investigated the use of a more flexible IRT model to fit the PROMIS Physical Function Itembank. The paper has been now published in Quality of Life Research’s nonparametric IRT section.
I’m doing a short webinar about the basics of PRO scoring using Item-Response Theory on July, 8th at 4pm (CET). The goal is to give you a short overview of scoring options for PROMIS and other IRT based measures, with a focus on interpretation.
