To help improve the use of PROMS in PAD, Vascular Cures created the PROM-PAD Working Group. The 2019 kickoff meeting of this group in the nation’s capital brought together a multi-disciplinary group of clinical experts, scientists, governmental and industry stakeholders — as well as several patients with PAD who provided direct and powerful input. We are proud to have catalyzed this important work.

In 2022 the PROM-PAD working group published two papers that will advance this field. The goal of the effort was not simply to provide recommendations to the PAD community, but to catalyze implementation of PROMs in a feasible, meaningful, and scientifically sound fashion to improve the lives of patients with PAD.
