Transparent Reporting of Evaluations with Nonrandomized Designs (TREND)

We would like to inform you of efforts to improve the reporting standards for nonrandomized evaluations of behavioral and public
health interventions.

The TREND statement complements the widely adopted CONsolidated Standards Of Reporting Trials (CONSORT) statement developed for randomized controlled trials. Information on reporting guidelines was published in the American Journal of Public Health in 2004. This publication provides a 22-item checklist specifically developed to guide standardized reporting of nonrandomized controlled trials. The TREND Checklist can be downloaded directly from the CDC website (http://www.cdc.gov/trendstatement), along with a free pdf of the AJPH article that provides additional information about the TREND effort, process, and rationale for these reporting elements.

The RUSH Toolbox

The RUSH Toolbox is a collection of tools and resources designed to assist researchers in creating or maintaining an integrated knowledge translation (KT) plan for high-quality disability and rehabilitation research. The RUSH toolbox will provide access to information related to KT, dissemination, and utilization.

The Spectrum of Prevention

A six-level framework that expands prevention efforts beyond education models by promoting a multifaceted range of activities for a more comprehensive and effective understanding of prevention. The Spectrum identifies multiple levels of intervention and encourages people to move beyond the perception that prevention is about teaching healthy behaviors. The Spectrum's six levels for strategy development provide a framework for a more comprehensive understanding of prevention.
