The SOPs for the outcome measures of clinical trials are available via ENCALS
To conduct reliable trials it is of utmost importance that the European ALS centres connected to TRICALS agree on each detail regarding how to measure outcomes for trials. Each outcome assessor should use the same routines to test the outcomes. However simple this sounds, it’s actually a huge effort to make sure that all assessors at trial centres have the same routines. TRICALS as the European trial network invests in training sessions and emodules to ensure the most reliable outcomes.
The SOPs for the outcome measures are now available on the ENCALS website.
