The paper presents the protocol for the COHESION project, outlining how the COHESION team will develop a core outcome set (COS) for neonatal encephalopathy.
The COS will define the most important outcomes that should be measured and recorded in trials to determine the effect of treatments for neonatal encephalopathy. These important outcomes will be contributed by parents, healthcare providers and researchers with experience/expertise of neonatal encephalopathy.
