Angela Stover, PhD

Angela Stover is a health services researcher at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She is completing an NCI-funded postdoctoral training program in Cancer Care Quality. Her research focuses on two areas: 1) implementing patient-reported outcome (PRO) measures assessing symptoms and physical function into routine cancer care to improve individual patient management; and 2) using PRO measures as an indicator of quality of care at the practice level. Angela recently received a merit award from the Conquer Cancer Foundation for her work on the American Society of Clinical Oncology’s national PRO workgroup. She completed her doctorate in public health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Prior to becoming a Tarheel, Angela was one of the original developers of PROMIS (Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System) measures assessing symptoms across a variety of health conditions (U01-AR052155, University of Pittsburgh). For her project as an
MT-DIRC scholar, Angela proposed to examine barriers and facilitators to implementing PRO measures into cancer care workflow in six healthcare systems.
