Abstract Objective To outline key considerations for general clinical readers when critically evaluating publications on platform trials and for researchers when designing these types of clinical trials. Study Design and Setting In this review, we describe key concepts of platform trials with case study discussion of two hallmark platform trials in STAMPEDE and I-SPY2. We provide reader’s guide to platform trials with a critical appraisal checklist. Results Platform trials offer flexibilities of...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The Bland and Altman's limits of agreement (LoA) method is the most commonly used statistical method to assess bias and precision of a new measuring device (it has been cited over 40'000 times as of March 2019). What is less known is that the LoA method can be dramatically misleading. METHODS: A new statistical methodology, which circumvent these deficiencies, has recently been published and made available in the R and Stata statistical packages. We aimed at introducin...

Abstract Objective Identifying pragmatic trials from among all randomized trials is challenging because of inconsistent reporting. Our objective was to develop and validate a search filter to identify reports of pragmatic trials from Ovid MEDLINE. Study Design and Setting Two sets of known and probable pragmatic trial records were analysed using text mining to generate candidate terms. Two large population sets comprising clinical trials and explanatory trials were used to select discriminating ...

OBJECTIVE: This study investigated trial consultations to identify whether and to what extent discussions of retention are present. STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING: This embedded mixed-methods study design included a purposive sample of audio-recorded trial consultations obtained from four sites of a large multicentre UK based surgical RCT. Study participants included potential trial participants, trial Surgeons and Research Nurses. RESULTS: Forty-four participants were included in this study: Potentia...

OBJECTIVE: To compare estimated treatment effects of physical therapy (PT) between Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) and outcomes measured in other ways. STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING: We selected randomized trials of PT with both a PROM and a non-PROM included in Cochrane Systematic Reviews (CSRs). Two reviewers independently extracted data and risk-of-bias assessments. Our primary outcome was the ratio of odds ratios (ROR), used to quantify how effect vary between PROMs and non-PROMs; an RO...

Abstract Objective Ensuring implementation fidelity of Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) in the complex clinical setting is remains exigent. We aimed to integrate the routine use of PROMs reports in day to day patient care, and assess the implementation outcomes using Statistical Process Control (SPC) methods. Study Design and Setting This prospective pilot study used an implementation science framework to integrate PROMs. SPC analysis was applied to track patient completion rates and st...
