Podcast: Core outcomes

People conducting and reporting clinical trials need to ensure that they measure and present the results of outcomes that matter to patients and practitioners, if they want to maximise the impact of their research.

Paula Williamson, from the UK Medical Research Council's North West Hub for Trials Methodology Research updates us on their work to May 2012.
