Enhance Your Published Article by Adding a Patient Reported Outcome

Have you published an original article or case report featuring a patient who would want to share his or her story? Contact your featured patients and tell them about this exciting opportunity to describe their experience in a way that fellow and future patients can understand.

Let’s be frank, journal articles aren’t the most accessible reading outside of the medical community. Adding a Patient Reported Outcome (PRO) is a fantastic way to highlight clinical experience from the perspective that matters most – the patient’s. Preparing for treatment can be a stressful, frightening time. Hearing from someone who’s already experienced it – all in their own words – can make a world of difference when deciding who to entrust with one’s health.

Here’s how it works, and remember that publishing a PRO alongside your article is free!

We ask that you reach out to your patient first. Once the patient has agreed to participate, we’ll take over from there – it’s that easy! When the patient has submitted his or her PRO, we’ll edit for spelling and grammatical errors; their words will otherwise be published as is, with no interference from the article authors or Cureus staff. PRO authors can also include supplemental images.

Here’s a few examples:Transient Tumor Volume Increase in Vestibular Schwannomas after Radiotherapy and CyberKnife Ablation for Intramedullary Spinal Cord Arteriovenous Malformations (AVMs): A Promising New Therapeutic Approach
