Guidelines for Randomized Controlled Trials

The CONSORT 2010 checklist contains information that should be included when designing and interpreting results from a randomized controlled trial. Please refer to the CONSORT website for an explanation and elaboration of the principles underlying the CONSORT statement.

CONSORT, which stands for Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials, encompasses various initiatives developed by the CONSORT Group to alleviate the problems arising from inadequate reporting of randomized controlled trials (RCTs).

The main product of CONSORT is the CONSORT Statement, which is an evidence-based, minimum set of recommendations for reporting RCTs. It offers a standard way for authors to prepare reports of trial findings, facilitating their complete and transparent reporting, and aiding their critical appraisal and interpretation.
