There has been an increase in the development and use of core outcome sets (COS) in clinical trials and routine care. A COS is an agreed standardised set of outcomes, which represent the minimum set of outcomes that should be measured and reported in a specific condition.

Many of the COS that have been developed and currently in use are led by researchers from high income countries. By end of 2019, of the 370 COS that have been published only 20% have included stakeholders from low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). We are looking at how to include even more stakeholders from LMICs in the development and use of COS.

Based on contribution to research and clinical work in LMICs we are reaching out to you through this survey to explore your views on COS development and use COS in LMIC settings.

Your input will go a long way in helping design strategies to increase development and COS in LMICs.

Please read the participant information sheet before you complete the survey.

Deadline: 11th February 2022
