Outcome Reporting Bias (selective reporting of outcomes)

In the field of outcome reporting bias, I have developed useable tools and statistical methodologies for researchers to detect, prevent and adjust for this problem. The activities have involved collaborative projects, the development of workshops, seminars, research meetings and the development of an interactive website such that methods can be applied more widely by non-methodologists.

Core Outcome Sets

In the field of Core Outcome Sets, I have contributed both to projects that look to developement core outcome sets but also methodological aspects associated with achieving consensus and reporting guidance.
