There is growing recognition from regulatory agencies that data reported directly from patients, without interpretation from clinicians and other people, provide critical information regarding quality of life, cognitive function, treatment benefits and satisfaction.
TORONTO, Ontario (PRWEB) May 26, 2021
The majority of clinical outcome assessments (COAs) in schizophrenia trials are clinician reported outcome (ClinRO) assessments such as the PANSS and various forms of CGI and functional instruments which use information from clinical interviews with the patient and perhaps a caregiver. These COAs provide critical insights into clinical status, making use of the expertise and insight of psychiatrists and other healthcare professionals.
However, there is growing recognition from regulatory agencies that data reported directly from patients, without interpretation from clinicians and other people, provide critical information regarding quality of life, cognitive function, treatment benefits and satisfaction. Thus, supplementing these assessments with other COA types, including Patient Reported Outcome (PRO) assessments and Performance Outcome (PerfO) assessments, may add valuable outcomes to enable better decision making in clinical trials.
Join Chris Edgar, PhD, Chief Science Officer, Cogstate and Jenny Ly, PhD, Senior Clinical Science Advisor, ERT in a live webinar on Thursday, June 10, 2021 at 11am EDT (4pm BST/UK) to hear presenters discuss the use of PROs and PerfOs to measure meaningful aspects of health in schizophrenia. The integration of such measures into clinical trials, including the use of eCOA, will also be addressed.
