ABSTRACT
The article provides an extension to the Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials (CONSORT) guidance with guidance for reporting pragmatic trials. The authors note that randomised controlled trials minimise the risk of bias when conducted properly. The need to clearly report trial results is addressed. The applicability of the trial results to practice is addressed. A table listing the differences between explanatory and pragmatic attitudes is included. A checklist of items for reporting pragmatic trials is presented including background, methods, participants, interventions, and objectives of the trials.
