NRG PCOR Educational Session at #NRG2024 in Orlando

December 11 2023

The Patient Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) Committee Chairs are pleased to announce that they will be offering an educational session at the Winter 2024 NRG Meeting in February in Orlando for NRG investigators interested in learning about the basics of how to design patient reported outcomes (PROs) components for future NRG trials.

This educational session is designed to broaden the knowledge of PROs among NRG investigators and is especially appropriate for investigators who might want to help design future trials and to serve as PRO co-chairs. Some of the topics that will be covered in this session will include how to select appropriate PRO measures for a trial, how to design hypothesis-testing PRO components for a trial, the NCI review and approval process, and basic statistical considerations.

The PRO educational session is open to anyone at NRG who is interested in broadening their knowledge about the importance and value of including PROs within clinical trials. This is intended to be a “mini-training” session as there is much to learn over time regarding PROs (e.g., what is required to be a PRO co-chair), but this is an informative introductory step. The approval of PRO co-chairs for NRG trials is made by PCOR and/or NCORP leadership based on the PRO background and experience of the candidates.

The PRO educational session will be part of the PCOR Committee meeting, which is scheduled for Thursday, February 15th from 4:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. Special registration for the session is not required; however, please remember to select the PCOR session when you register for the NRG Meeting.
