Work for Work Programme 3

Work Programme 3 (Developing a core outcome set). Our contribution to WP3 is focused on assessment of the psychometric properties of the various candidate instruments for measuring outcomes. For each identified measure, the WP3 team are extracting the available evidence from research papers and reports on how the measure performs in various important respects. These include acceptability to people with dementia and their carers, statistical validity and reliability, and the ability to discriminate between people at different levels of the outcome. The Statistics team is advising on how to summarise, combine and interpret the available evidence, for the purpose of deciding on the final selection of instruments for the core outcome set.
