Reporting data on homeopathic treatments (RedHot): a supplement to CONSORT*

Forsch Komplementmed. 2006 Dec;13(6):368-71. doi: 10.1159/000097073. Epub 2006 Dec 21.


When homeopathy is tested in clinical trials, understanding and appraisal are likely to be improved if published reports contain details of prescribing strategies and treatments. An international Delphi panel was convened to develop consensus guidelines for reporting homeopathic methods and treatments. The panel agreed 28 treatment- and provider-specific items that supplement the CONSORT (Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials) Statement items 2, 3, 4 and 19. The authors recommend these for adoption by authors and journals when reporting trials of homeopathy.
