Core Outcome Measures in Effectiveness Trials

Survey and Core Outcomes Program for Extracorporeal Support

General Information

Summary:
Extracorporeal support for critically ill patients has increased over the past decade but there remains inconsistency in the definitions used to report what is being used and the outcome measures of extracorporeal research projects. We will conduct systematic reviews to define the scope of the problem and conduct a Delphi process to gain consensus for core outcomes in this area.
