Outcomes model standards for Systematic Outcomes Analysis


A set of standards has been developed for drawing outcomes models which can be used in Systematic Outcomes Analysis. Building models which meet these standards makes sure that such models are useful for later stages in  Systematic Outcomes Analysis. An underlying principle of these standards is that outcomes models should include all outcomes which are potentially influencible by an intervention. Often models are drawn which are restricted to outcomes which are only measurable or attributable to (able to be proved were caused by) an intervention. The issues of measurement and attribution are dealt with in later stages of Systematic Outcomes Analysis. For the standards see here. For a summary of the standards see here. For further discussion of the features of outcomes (influencible, measurable, attributable etc.) see here
