Core Outcome Measures in Effectiveness Trials

Developing core common outcomes in the environmental nexus: Comet-E

General Information

Summary:
Research waste in the environmental field is substantive with low power, poorly reported studies constituting the majority of the evidence-base. These problems are exacerbated by lack of standardised outcome measures. This project aims to address this by i) articulating the need for core common outcomes and ii) demonstrating applicability in the environmental domain using peatland ecosystem service delivery as an exemplar.
