What we do

The COMET (Core Outcome Measures in Effectiveness Trials) Initiative brings together people interested in the development and application of COS. COMET aims to collate and stimulate relevant resources, both applied and methodological, to facilitate exchange of ideas and information, and to foster methodological research in this area. Specific objectives are to:

  1. Raise awareness of current problems with outcomes in clinical trials
  2. Encourage COS development and uptake
  3. Promote Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) in COS development
  4. Provide resources to facilitate these aims
  5. Avoid unnecessary duplication of effort
  6. Encourage evidence-based COS development
