What is COS?
When the health of an individual is evaluated, it is very important to know what effects of a condition are the most important and may affect their life the most. The same essential features inform the treatment testing and research. In this project, we want to investigate which features, or outcomes, are the most important in Post-COVID Condition.
We want to know which outcomes are the most important and should be included in all future research studies and clinical care of Post-COVID Condition. It is important to note that once the core outcome set is developed this does not mean that other outcomes cannot be measured too. The core outcome set aims to ensure that the most important outcomes are measured in every study and in clinical care.
A video developed by Core Outcome Measures in Effectiveness Trials (COMET) initiative explains what core outcome sets are, why they are important, and how patients and the public are involved in developing COS.
