  • icon Using Patient Reported Outcome Measures to improve sleep apnoea management

Sleep symposium at WSC 2022

Discover how Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) can be used to better manage sleep apnoea in your patient population.


Patient Reported Outcome Measures: what are they, what makes a quality PROM and how can they support sleep apnoea therapy management?

In this webinar, Inger Abma will explain the utility of PROMs, how they can be best collected, their suitability and their level of detail. Plus, she outlines a review of existing PROM frameworks and her team’s own PRAQ framework, developed to better meet the need for OSA PROMs. Peter Cistulli introduces a study showing the influence of PROMs on PAP treatment adherence, including patient feedback pre- and post-treatment. Finally, Ulla Anttalainen explains the impact of an out-of-hospital virtual sleep unit on clinical outcomes, showing the benefits and challenges of telemanagement and telemonitoring as experienced by the team and their patients.

The participants were provided with a nominal financial incentive for providing the following testimonial.
