Theresa Coles, Ph.D., is a health outcomes methodologist with a focus on measuring and evaluating patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and other clinical outcomes assessments (COAs), integrating PRO measures in clinical care, and improving interpretation of patient-centered outcome scores for use in healthcare delivery and clinical research settings to inform decision making.
My research program is comprised of 3 pillars:
- Enhance the assessment of physical function and related concepts to inform decision-making
- Improve interpretability of PRO scores
