An international group of researchers, journal editors, and stakeholders in intervention studies are working with the Consolidated Standards for Reporting Trials (CONSORT) Group to develop CONSORT-SPI: an official CONSORT Extension for social and psychological intervention trials.
We are looking for participants for an upcoming Delphi process to generate possible reporting standards for the guideline. We are also looking for interested researchers, editors, funders, and other stakeholders to help disseminate this important work once completed. Stakeholders are desired from the various disciplines that often develop, evaluate, and disseminate these interventions, particularly the addiction sciences.
