Universal Late Pregnancy Ultrasound Screening in Nulliparous Women

The aim of this HTA funded research project is to evaluate the potential benefit and cost-effectiveness of universal late pregnancy ultrasound screening in nulliparous women. In this online survey we ask the members which diagnostic findings and pregnancy outcomes they consider important. This will help us prioritise the systematic reviews of current evidence, evaluate the cost-effectiveness of different screening strategies and design a future randomised clinical trial.

Core Outcomes in Neonatology (COIN) Project

The COIN (Core Outcomes In Neonatology) team at Imperial College London would like to invite you to help global research to improve neonatal care.

Their aim is to define a “Core Outcomes Set” for neonatology, a standard minimum set of outcome measures that are important to parents, former neonatal patients, and healthcare professionals.  Consistent reporting of a minimum set of outcomes in research studies will help ensure they are comparable, and will facilitate future meta-analyses.
