Stefan Cano, PhD, CPsychol, AFBPsS
I am Chief Scientific Officer at Modus Outcomes, a Division of Thread Research. I am a Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society and have 27 years’ experience in patient centered outcome research across a range of clinical and surgical disciplines. My main area of interest is in developing, applying, and improving mixed methods psychometric research in clinical studies and therapeutic trials. I am especially interested in maximizing the interpretability of existing and new patient centered outcome instruments.
I am also co-developer of Q-Portfolio patient reported outcome (PRO) instruments (including BREAST-Q©, FACE-Q©, BODY-Q©, and CLEFT-Q©), which have been used widely in clinical research, trials, practice, guidance, registries, audits, and quality improvement initiatives. I have co-authored 200+ articles in patient centered outcome research in peer review journals (H-Index 63).
