Revised CONSORT Extension for Acupuncture Trials

The revised Standards for Reporting Interventions in Clinical Trials of Acupuncture (STRICTA) guidelines have been published. STRICTA, now an official extension of CONSORT follows the format of the new CONSORT 2010 checklist and CONSORT for non-pharmacological interventions.

While STRICTA should function as a stand-alone guideline for acupuncture trials, the checklist might also be applicable for reporting a broad range of clinical evaluation designs such as uncontrolled studies and case reports describing acupuncture treatments.
