The COVID-19 Core Outcome Set Project

Invitation to take part

In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, much research is underway to inform the care of people with suspected or confirmed COVID-19. We urgently need to know what outcomes are important to people with suspected or confirmed COVID-19, their family members, community members and health professionals.

Your input will help us to rapidly develop a “core outcome set” in COVID-19. This is a list of outcomes (which are the impacts of COVID-19 or its treatment on patients) that should be reported, as a minimum, in all clinical trials in COVID-19. This will ensure that research and clinical guidelines address outcomes that are meaningful and important.

This study will involve completion of two short survey rounds (10 minutes) in order to try and reach agreement among the group. You will be asked to give your opinion on the importance of 25 outcomes for people with suspected or confirmed COVID-19. The survey is anonymous, and anyone can participate. Round 1 is planned to close 10th April 2020 and all participants who complete the survey will receive a copy of the results.
