The CONSORT Group

The CONSORT group The CONSORT Group is an international and eclectic group, comprising trialists, methodologists and medical journal editors. The Executive strive for a balance of established researchers and emerging younger ones. Just as the CONSORT Statement is a tool that evolves in response to the emerging evidence, the membership of the CONSORT Group is dynamic, evolving in response to emerging projects and needed expertise so that new ideas are continually absorbed as new members contribute on specific projects.

CONSORT Staff

Thanks to funding from the Medical Research Programme (MRC) in the UK (2012), the CONSORT executive have been able to create two part-time posts to assist with administration and research. These post were previously funded by the UK National Coordinating Centre for Research Methodology, part of the NIHR Health Technology Programme (2006-2011).
