Dr. Roberts Associate Medical and Research Director published in Journal of Patient-Reported Outcomes

Dr. Roberts, the Associate Medical and Research Director at BCDI was published in Journal of Patient-Reported Outcomes.  The article discusses how setting goals for patients with hemophilia A with one or two goal objectives helped them achieve success at both 6 week and 12 weeks. The Goal Attainment Scaling (GAS) was looked at for one and two goals being set. These preliminary findings highlight the potential for further individualization of GAS by allowing participants to select fewer goals than are currently imposed by standard GAS guidelines. Standardized Response Means (SRMs) suggest that one-goal GAS is responsive to change in a clinical population. Further research is recommended in a larger sample where responsiveness of one- and multiple-goal GAS can be compared. Fantastic research that will help us serve our patients on a daily basis.
