Published Core Outcome Sets in Women’s and Newborn Health
|Health problem||Full title||Description||COMET registration number||Links||Funding Body|
|Breast surgery||Development of a core outcome set for research and audit studies in reconstructive breast surgery||Appropriate outcome selection is essential if research is to guide decision-making and inform policy. Systematic reviews of the clinical, cosmetic and patient-reported outcomes of reconstructive breast surgery, however, have demonstrated marked heterogeneity, and results from individual studies cannot be compared or combined. Use of a core outcome set may improve the situation. The BRAVO study developed a core outcome set for reconstructive breast surgery||152||Full article: |

|Epilepsy in pregnancy||Defining core outcomes for clinical trials in pregnant women with epilepsy (E-core): A Delphi survey||The aim of this project is to develop a core outcome set for clinical trials on the management of epilepsy in pregnant women.|
The objectives are: a) to perform a systematic literature review to produce a comprehensive list of all maternal and neonatal outcomes reported in recent studies of pregnant women with epilepsy; b) to use the Delphi technique to refine the outcome list into a core outcome set agreed by key stakeholders.

|Preterm birth||Core outcome set for studies on primary prevention of preterm birth||The Core outcomes set on primary Prevention Of Preterm birth (COPOP) project used an international multidisciplinary Delphi method to develop consensus on a set of key clinical outcomes for the evaluation of preventive interventions for preterm birth in asymptomatic pregnant women. A total of 228 participants from five stakeholder groups from 10 lower-middle-income and 17 high-income countries scored 31 outcomes. Consensus was reached on 13 core outcomes.|
