The COIN (Core Outcomes In Neonatology) team would like to invite you all to help with some research to improve neonatal care.
The COIN project team are based in Imperial College, London. We want to identify a ‘core outcome set’ for Neonatology. The aim of core outcome sets is to agree a standardised minimum set of outcomes, important to key stakeholders (including parents and patients). These should then be consistently reported in future research in neonatology. This will ensure that studies collect outcomes that are important to parents, patients and health professionals as well as researchers. Core outcomes sets also facilitate high quality systematic reviews and meta-analyses, by ensuring outcomes collected in different studies can be easily combined and compared.
We want to identify which outcomes are most important to neonatal patients, their parents, healthcare professionals who provide neonatal care and neonatal researchers. To do this we need lots of people in these groups to answer a series of surveys telling us which outcomes they think are most important. We hope to identify a “Core Outcome Set” that can be measured every time research is done in babies. This will help us to provide even better care for our patients.
