Research Study: Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) in Osteopathic Practice

Osteopathy Australia is conducting research on practitioner perceptions and barriers to the use of Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) in Osteopathic Practice.

The aim of this study is to understand osteopaths’ perceptions and barriers to the use of PROMs in practice. Your participation can help inform us about the use of PROMs in osteopathic practice and will help us determine the potential for implementing measures in practice, in turn, supporting patient progress and building evidence-based practice for osteopathy in Australia.

PARTICIPANTS NEEDED – HAVE YOUR SAY!

We want to know your views on PROMs in practice.

Osteopathy Australia is looking for practising osteopaths to take part in focus groups to tell us their views on the use of PROMs in osteopathic practice.

Focus groups will be run online and will take approximately 1.5 to 2 hours of your time. All results obtained will remain entirely confidential and secure.

The focus groups will take place on:

  • 7th April 10am, 2pm, 6pm (times are in AEST)
  • 8th April 10am, 2pm, 6pm (times are in AEST)

Alternative days/times may be arranged depending on interest.
