Description:


Inadequate and poor-quality outcome reporting in transplant clinical trials is a known barrier that impedes the ability of researchers to evaluate, replicate, synthesize, and build upon study findings and impacts evidence-based decision-making by patients, clinicians, and policy-makers. Using cardiovascular disease as an example, we will discuss and examine a set of evidence-informed and consensus-based standards focused on outcome reporting in clinical trials that can be applied across all solid organ transplantation.

Learning Objectives:


  • Define a set of core outcome measures that matters to patients and their caregivers

  • Understand the key criterion and tools to measure these key outcomes in transplantation
