Resources for Cohort Retention
Improving Long Term Outcomes Research
This NIH-funded “national infrastructure” grant (R24HL111895), aims to provide resources for longitudinal clinical research studies.
The following resources are freely available from the project’s website (www.improveLTO.com):
- Database of common patient-reported and performance-based outcome measurements, and standardized information about these measures.
- Adaptable tools, templates, and manuals to maximize cohort retention (including an interactive database with >600 retention strategies abstracted from a recent systematic review).
- A statistical tool to address the competing risk of mortality when evaluating functional outcomes.
