How to design a patient-centric oncology trial using your PRO strategy

Here are some key areas to consider when designing your oncology trial: 

  • Understand the patient experience: include a range of Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs) that measure physical and role function, symptomatic adverse events, and tumor-related symptoms 
  • Minimize repetitive questions and focus on what’s most important to reduce burden 
  • Allow patients to let you know how they’re feeling, when they’re feeling it. Collect PROs at the appropriate frequency and ‘in the moment’ 
  • Enable patients to use ePROs at home to increase frequency of symptom reporting without the travel burden   
  • Shorten their time at site with patients completing PROs at home before their visit 
  • Keep patients informed about the trial and their role with notifications, messages and reminders, disease specific information, and motivational training
