Table 4 Re-rating data for ‘new category A’ outcomesa (i.e. outcomes which were later included in the voting for inclusion phase) during the consensus meeting

From: A core outcomes set for clinical trials of interventions for young adults with type 1 diabetes: an international, multi-perspective Delphi consensus study

Outcome name Number rating outcome measure 8 or higher (n = 12) Mean rating Standard deviation
Body mass index (BMI)b 3 6.33 2.06
Missed clinic appointments (n) 9 7.75 1.36
Events of severe hypoglycaemia (n) 11 8.67 0.65
Perceived levels of barriers to treatmentb 7 6.83 2.04
Perceived level of control over diabetesc 8 7.50 2.28
  1. aNew category A outcomes are those outcomes categorised as outcome B based on Delphi Survey 2 ratings, but subsequently received sufficient support through discussion and re-rating at the consensus meeting to warrant their inclusion in the set of outcomes voted on for inclusion in the final COS
  2. bWhile the outcome ‘BMI’ was well below the cut-off for inclusion as a new category A outcome, one participant argued passionately for its inclusion and subsequently consensus group participants agreed for its inclusion in the voting phase
  3. cWhile this variable was one vote below the cut-off for inclusion as a new category A outcome, a number of participants argued for its inclusion in the voting phase and consensus group participants agreed
