Patient-Reported Outcomes in cancer research

The PROMOTION project is an international research initiative aimed to answer key questions about the added value of Patient-Reported Outcomes (PROs) in cancer research.

This initiative led to the development of the PROMOTION Registry, that is a large database, containing information regarding, for example, the PRO assessment methodology, the statistical design and the outcome reporting of published studies in oncology with a PRO component, which are identified through systematic literature searches.

This database contains data on cancer randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and it is being enlarged to also include non-RCT studies.
