SISAQOL-IMI is good news for patients taking part in cancer clinical trials as their experiences will be better captured, alongside valuable information on treatment risks, benefits and tolerability of treatments. This project and its generated recommendations is also of importance to organisations like the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as PRO data presented in the same way across trials and cancers will help support fair and informed decision making.

This in turn may lead to improved patient satisfaction with medicines and treatments, an increased likelihood of adherence to treatment, higher likelihood of treatment success, and a reduction in health‐care cost in the long term. Patients have been involved in the project from the very beginning, and through WECAN, will continue to be involved.

Patients are responsible for communication and dissemination of all project findings and ensuring that any messages emerging from the project are published in plain language so they can be read and understood by all. Findings will also be translated into different European languages.

PROs are surveys used within clinical trials. PRO surveys are used to collect information from a patient perspective, such as how a patient feels about their quality of life. The data collected from PRO surveys help decision makers understand more about the benefits and risks of new medicines. Clinical trials in cancer are run by universities, pharmaceutical companies, and other organisations. Therefore, different people have different ways of collecting and analysing PRO data.

This makes if difficult for decision makers to compare the results of trials easily and fairly. To address these problems, the Setting International Standards in Analyzing Patient-Reported Outcomes and Quality of Life Endpoints Data (SISAQOL-IMI) project was established. Researchers working on SISAQOL-IMI will generate a set of guidelines on how PRO data should be collected from patients, then analysed, and presented to people who make decisions in healthcare.
