Core Outcome Measures in Effectiveness Trials

Core outcomes for selective Fetal Growth Restriction in Twin pregnancies.

General Information

With the rising numbers of twin pregnancies the associated problems such as (selective) fetal growth restriction ((s)FGR) are rising too. (s)FGR has a higher risk for poor short-term as wel as poor longterm outcome. There is a need for proper research to indicate preventive and therapeutic options with robust and comparible data. In current literature of (s)FGR in twin pregnancies many different outcomes are reported, making it difficult to compare results.

In this study we aim to develop a core outcome set for (s)FGR in twin pregnancies. We aim to engage different stakeholder groups including healthcare professionals, researchers and patients/patient represenatives.
