Reporting standards of studies and papers on the prevention and management of foot ulcers in diabetes

Reporting standards of studies and papers on the prevention and management of foot ulcers in diabetes: required details and markers of good quality William J Jeffcoate, Sicco A Bus, Frances L Game, Robert J Hinchliffe, Patricia E Price, Nicolaas C Schaper, on behalf of the International Working Group on the Diabetic Foot and the European Wound Management Association Lancet Diabetes Endocrinol 2016; Published Online; May 10, 2016 (full text) Quote: The evidence base for many aspects of the management of foot ulcers in people with diabetes is weak, and goodquality research, especially relating to studies of direct relevance to routine clinical care, is needed. In this paper, we summarise the core details required in the planning and reporting of intervention studies in the prevention and management of diabetic foot ulcers, including studies that focus on off -loading, stimulation of wound healing, peripheral artery disease, and infection. We highlight aspects of trial design, conduct, and reporting that should be taken into account to minimise bias and improve quality.
