Home 9 Patient Report Outcome (PRO) Translations

With a growing number of clinical trial sponsors moving to overseas trial sites and needing to comply with international regulations for clinical outcome assessments (COA), expert PRO translations are an essential solution for sponsors and stakeholders. As one of several different types of COAs, patient reported outcomes (PRO) are a clinical measurement that is self-documented by the patient records health outcomes like symptoms, quality of life, adverse reactions, and reports and ratings of health care. Commonly submitted digitally in the form of an ePRO, PROs are essential for any clinical trial and ensuring that new medications and products can safely be brought to market. To help sponsors and clinical trial stakeholders document and submit PROs in multiple languages, CSOFT Health Sciences offer professional and high quality PRO translations.

In addition to PRO translations, we offer a full range of COA localization solutions, including clinician-reported outcome (ClinRO) translations, performance-reported outcome (PerfO) translations, and observer-reported outcome (ObsRO) translations.

Patient Diaries Translations

Patient diaries are an essential tool that enables clinical trial participants and patients to accurately document patient-reported outcomes (PROs). Using a patient diary, the study subject or patient may be asked to record information like adverse events, symptoms, or medication dosage times. For anyone conducting cross-border clinical trials or in need of translations of patient diaries, CSOFT Health Sciences offers professional and high quality patient diary translations in more than 250 languages.

Case Report Form (CRF) Translations

During a clinical trial, a case report form (CRF/eCRF) is an essential tool used by the trial sponsor to record and collect data on each trial participant, which makes CRF translations necessary for sponsors conducting trials across borders and needing to reach patients in multiple languages. To help the sponsor support and test their hypothesis, a CRF is created and used to gather the vital patient information, which can range from a small collection of notes to high volumes of clinical notes and patient data. With a growing demand to reach patients across languages and to help sponsors comply with global Institutional Review Board (IRB) guidelines, CSOFT Health Sciences ensures professional and high quality CRF translations.

Linguistic Validation for COAs

For stakeholders involved in global clinical trials, many regulating bodies require documents like patient questionaries, which are used to record clinical outcome assessments (COA), to be submitted for review in particular languages. With a growing number of sponsors conducting clinical trials internationally and involving patients of all backgrounds, ensuing that patient questionnaire translations are consistent and accurate is essential for successfully bringing the new products to market and completing the trial within a reasonable time frame. Using a multistep process called linguistic validation that combines the knowledge of linguists and medical experts, CSOFT Health Sciences can help sponsors and other trial stakeholders ensure their patient questionnaires and COA needs are accurate in more than 250 languages.
