The purpose of the Qualitative and Patient-Reported Outcomes (Q-PRO) Shared Resource is to support population-focused research conducted by researchers in the Cancer Prevention and Control Program at the Wake Forest Baptist Comprehensive Cancer Center (WFBCCC), the Clinical Research Program at WFBCCC, and in the Wake Forest School of Medicine (WFSM) community.
We provide pre-award scientific consultation to WFBCCC and WFSM investigators, and research infrastructure to support both qualitative and quantitative research for funded projects.
The Q-PRO Shared Resource addresses the unmet needs for methodological expertise in qualitative research and patient-reported outcomes that promotes translational research in clinical and community settings.
Consultations are provided at no-cost to the user. Pre-award services may be available at no-cost to the user. All other services are fee-for-service. Submit a Q-PRO Service Request Form to initiate an estimate.
