BEGG, Colin et al. Improving the quality of reporting of randomized controlled trials. The CONSORT statement. Rev. Esp. Salud Publica [online]. 1998, vol.72, n.1, pp.5-11. ISSN 2173-9110.

This summary corresponds to the translation into Spanish of the Special Communication published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in August 1996, along with the editorial published in the same issue "How to report Randomized Controlled Trials. The Consort Statement". It describes the Consolidated Standars for Preparation of Controlled Clinical Trials, prepared by a work group made up of members of the SORT Group and of the Asilomar Work Group, along with the editor of a magazine and the author of the report on a clinical trial. The work was carried out by means of a Delphy process and the result was a check list and a process diagram. The check list is made up of 21 items that mainly refer to methods, results and discussions on the report of a controlled clinical trial, identifying the necessary information in order to be able to evaluate the internal and external value of the report, judging the improvement to be positive for the patient, the editors and the reviewers of the magazines.

Keywords : Controlled Clinical Trial; Work Group; Delphy Method.
