If your city was slammed by record-shattering heat this summer, you can partly blame the stuff the city itself is made of.

GrantAbstractPatient –reported experience measures (PREMs) are a valuable tool in assessing patient’s subjective experiences within healthcare settings. They assist the evaluation and development of clinical services, and could be considered most useful when they assess elements of care pertinent to the specific health condition or clinical service.
