Two free educational offerings for researchers are now available from the NCI in collaboration with the International Society for Quality of Life Research.


The first is a new webinar series, Best Practices for Integrating Patient-Reported Outcomes in Oncology Clinical Trials. The series includes 6 videos which can be viewed independently, or in sequence to meet an individual's learning needs.  Experts in PRO research present on topics including: selecting PRO measures, designing high quality studies with PRO endpoints, statistical considerations, ensuring data quality, and reporting outcomes.


Another webinar just released, Symptom Management & Quality of Life Concept Design, covers a variety of practical considerations for developing a symptom management concept for clinical research.  Experts in the field present on topics including: required elements, statistics, and the community physician perspective.


Both are now live and can be viewed on demand through the NCI Division of Cancer Prevention Website at
