Core Outcome Measures in Effectiveness Trials

Deposit your outcome classifications

We welcome feedback from COS developers who have applied the taxonomy to outcomes in their systematic review, Delphi study or final COS. We will happily respond to queries and check outcome classifications, and COS developers are invited to submit their lists of outcomes and associated taxonomy classifications for inclusion in our repository. You are requested to download and populate the Excel spreadsheet below, providing the title/authors of your COS, indication of the source of the outcome list (systematic review, Delphi study, final COS, other – please specify), verbatim outcome text and associated taxonomy domain for each outcome, and any comments or queries you may have. We also invite you to record and submit taxonomy domain classifications for specific HRQL measurement tools using this spreadsheet.
