The overall aim of the SIG is to promote research into use of PROMS in the UK and in addition meet the aim of ISOQOL ‘to advance the scientific study of health-related quality of life and other patient-centered outcomes to identify effective interventions, enhance the quality of health care and promote the health of populations’.

One of the current initiatives of the SIG is the 2nd UK PROMs conference at the University of Oxford on June 8th 2017 following the first successful conference hosted by the University of Sheffield last year.
