LIBRE in Berlin: ISOQOL Conference October 2014

December 3rd, 2014


While this post is a little belated, we would be remiss to not mention LIBRE’s recent trip to Berlin! Back in October 2014, Molly Marino, LIBRE staff member and current PhD candidate, flew across the Atlantic to represent LIBRE at the International Society for Quality of Life Research (ISOQOL) Annual Conference. The theme of the conference was Quality of Life: Advancing Measurement Science and Transforming Healthcare.

During the conference, Molly presented a poster describing the conceptual model we’re using to guide the LIBRE project and the development of items that will be included in the LIBRE questionnaire. This poster shows, in brief, our analysis from an extensive literature review and the amazing feedback we received from our focus groups and interviews with burn survivors and clinicians.

While Molly had a great time at the conference – attending talks and showing off LIBRE’s work – she also managed to fit in some time to see some of the beautiful city that is Berlin. We count ourselves fortunate that we can travel to such great places to share LIBRE with others!
