Prognosis Research Tools
Many IPD meta-analysis projects aim to summarise information about prognosis
- in particular, IPD projects offer many opportunities to examine prognostic factors and to develop & validate clinical prediction models.
More general guidance and good practice principles for prognosis research projects are available, as follows:
- a website promoting good practice, education, videos & training courses in prognosis & prediction research
- a textbook providing a practical introduction for researchers who are developing, conducting, interpreting and appraising prognosis studies.
- a series of four papers outlining a framework for prognosis research including overall prognosis, prognostic factors, prognostic models and predictors of treatment effect
