Are you passionate about using patient important outcomes in research? Do you want to learn how agreeing such outcomes with key stakeholders leads to the development of a core outcome set - helping reduce waste and improving the quality of research?
In these videos, originally part of the Cochrane Learning Live and International PPI Network series, the presenters give an overview of core outcome sets (you can watch a brief introductory animation on core outcome sets here). Two patients and a patient organisation representative who have all been involved in developing core outcome sets briefly present their experiences. The challenges of patient input into core outcome set development was also explored and links for further information were provided.
The session was aimed at organisations and individuals working in patient and public involvement (PPI) as well as patient organisations and patients / the public undertaking PPI in research who have an interest in patient important outcomes for research.
The webinar was delivered in February 2020 and below you will find the videos from the webinar, together with accompanying slides to download [PDF].
