The OROS Project


What is the OROS Project?

OROS stands for Outcome Reporting in Obstetric Studies. We are a consortium of healthcare professionals, researchers, statisticians, students, current and former patients, and members of the general public working to develop Core Outcome Sets for high-risk pregnancy conditions.

What is a core outcome set (COS)?

No two studies define outcomes in the same way. This creates many challenges when it comes to reviewing and comparing the results of trials and research studies. A “Core Outcome Set” is a standardized and validated minimum set of outcomes or outcome measures for scientific studies and trials. It sets a standard for what should be measured, how it should be measured, and how to report it.
