ready Outbreak Reports and Intervention studies Of Nosocomial infection

Abbreviation: ORION

General Information
In order to raise the standards of research and publication, a CONSORT equivalent for these largely quasi-experimental studies has been prepared by the authors of two relevant systematic reviews undertaken for the HTA and the Cochrane Collaboration. The statement was revised following widespread consultation with learned societies, editors of journals and researchers. It consists of a 22 item checklist, and a summary table. Like CONSORT, ORION considers itself a work in progress, which requires ongoing dialogue for successful promotion and dissemination.
