Dr Hazel Morbey and Dr Andrew Harding travelled to Amsterdam to present posters at the COMET Initiative 7th meeting. The posters focused on the role of co-research and the final core outcome set. The presentations and the posters were well received, prompted discussion with interested researchers also helped to inform further stages of the study.
Not only will this work inform ‘what to measure’ in research, but it also has potential to inform the design of services and interventions to affect these outcomes. The team have recently held discussions with key contacts around how this might be done. The WP3 team are continuing to write up findings and are also undertaking a review to locate existing outcome measurement instruments that adequately accommodate items in the core outcome set.
