For more than 20 years, Sanofi has explored how illnesses, diseases and medication impact patients’ daily life through the use of Patient-Reported Outcome (PRO) questionnaires. These questionnaires are given to participants during medication development to capture the perspectives of those who are living with illness or disease. PRO questionnaires have been developed to measure many aspects of illness, disease and medication, including signs and symptoms, quality of life, satisfaction, and medication side-effects.
Sanofi has implemented many such PRO questionnaires, developed by others in the scientific community, in our programs. In addition, we have also created new PRO questionnaires when the coverage of existing questionnaires was inadequate, or where the concept of importance to patients had not been previously evaluated. The PRO questionnaires developed by Sanofi are available through a dedicated Sanofi website.
