Reporting Guidelines for Public Health Non-Communicable Disease Modelling Studies

The production of standardised reporting guidelines (e.g. CONSORT guidelines for clinical trials) has been associated with a marked improvement in reporting quality. Guidelines for reporting modelling studies could be similarly valuable, setting out a minimum dataset to be reported on to allow the interpretation of modelling studies.

We are proposing to develop reporting guidelines for Public Health NCD Modelling Studies, working in collaboration with the EQUATOR Network. Guideline development will be an international collaborative process and follow the six stage process outlined by the EQUATOR Network.
