The aim of the research is to develop a Core Outcome Set (COS) for use in research evaluations of interventions used for venous leg ulceration. A COS is a standardised set of outcomes which should be, as a minimum, measured and reported in all venous leg ulcer trials. An outcome is an identifiable endpoint which endeavours to describe health-related changes caused by the exposure to a health care intervention, for example a dressing. It needs to be appropriate, measurable and meaningful to stakeholders including patients, carers, researchers, healthcare professionals and industry.
