PhD Opportunity in Leeds, UK: Outcomes for Pressure Ulcer Trials (OUTPUTs)
Development of outcome measurement instruments for core domain outcomes
Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
PhD opportunity at the Leeds University with the Outcomes for Pressure Ulcer Trials (OUTPUTs) team to develop outcome measurement instruments for core domain outcomes to increase the quality and comparability of PU prevention trials.
What the studentship will encompass: The focus of this studentship is to reach consensus on preferred OMIs for the agreed COS domains. It is acknowledged that the quality of methods used to select the core outcome measurement instruments varies considerably, with guidance aiming to improve/standardise the approach taken [5, 7]. This is a particular challenge in the PU prevention field, where there is substantial cross-trial variation regarding PU classification and methods used to determine PU presence as well as patient reported outcomes. This variation complicates the synthesis of trial results and hinders the development of clear-cut evidence-based practice recommendations to support clinical decision-making.
