Patient Reported Measures

In 2016, The Agency for Clinical Innovation developed a series of on-line education modules to support the implementation and sustainability of patient reported measures (PRMs) in clinical settings.  To implement, sustain and realise the full potential of PRMs, the engagement of patients, clinicians, administrators and managers is needed.  ACI has worked with these stakeholders to develop content that is relevant to each group as learning needs will differ depending on the individual’s role.

It is recommended that all participants start with Module 1: Importance of Patient Reported Measures. During this module any further education needs will be identified.

Feedback: ACI welcomes input about the PRMs modules. If you have any comments or questions regarding this module’s content or functionality please contact:
