Core Outcome Measures in Effectiveness Trials

Creating a set of core outcome domains for research on the management of laryngomalacia in otherwise healthy infants

General Information

Summary:
We are aiming to develop a Core Outcome Set for management of laryngomalacia in otherwise-healthy infants. We propose to present the long list of possible outcomes of interest (developed from literature review and interviews with parents and professionals) to parents and professionals in a two-round Delphi survey, followed by a consensus meeting. The Core Outcome Set would improve the care of children with laryngomalacia by standardising reporting, and would ensure that the outcomes that are studied are ones that matter to parents / carers and professionals.
