Our research focuses on methods for measuring perceived health, disability, and patient-reported outcomes (PROs). Our main lines of research apply these methods to assessing the burden of mental disorders and to evaluate the comparative effectiveness of interventions in chronic diseases, in particular cancer and asthma. Our research is carried out in collaboration with several international research networks.  Knowledge transfer is also an important focus of the group, with a leading role in BiblioPRO, the online library of PROs in Spanish, including more than 1,700 instruments.

We are engaged with a number of educational and mentoring activities: the Master's program in Public Health, the degree in Medicine,and  other official education programs from both Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) and Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), and the PSMAR Teaching Unit of specialists in Preventive Medicine and Public Health.

Our team comprises about 20 professionals with different backgrounds such as life sciences, psychology, statistics, and others, and is  part of the CIBER in Epidemiology and Public Health (Instituto de Salud Carlos III), and it is recognized as a Consolidated Research Group by AGAUR (DIUE, Generalitat de Catalunya).
