IHA’s leader of Biostatistics will present as part of a Monash University two-day workshop and seminar focusing on ‘Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs): new horizons in health-related quality of life improvements’ from the 25th to 26th June 2015.

Lucy’s seminar will focus on ‘Applications of latent variable modelling in psychometric evaluation of PROMS’. One of Lucy’s key areas of expertise is latent variable modelling, including structural equation modelling, item response theory, and latent class analysis, with particular emphasis on the application of these methods to the study of risks, outcomes, and burden of chronic illness.  She has been involved in the development of a range of PROMs, including the soon-to-be published Single Checking and Administration of Medications Scale (SCAMS).
