Q3. a. Now I will review each section of the CONSORT checklist with you and will ask you about it, okay? For the section titled [title/abstract et cetera – each section of the checklist], is it important that the information on how equity is relevant for the trial is reported for the [title/abstract et cetera]?|
[This process will be repeated with each section of CONSORT checklist – there are six sections: title/abstract, introduction, methods, results, discussion, other information. There are subsections for each section and it is expected that participants will refer to subsections and issues of particular importance, if needed].
Are there any reasons that it might be challenging to include information on how equity is relevant for a trial in this section?
