OMERACT Technical Advisory Group

The OMERACT Technical Advisory Group (TAG) operates as an integral part of the Methods stream of OMERACT, offering its expertise in Core Outcome Set Development methodology. Comprising a team of skilled collaborators, TAG members bring a wealth of knowledge in patient-centered research, measurement science, psychometrics, and statistical analysis. Their primary mission is to provide expert methods advice, rigorously review measurement methodologies, and contribute to the advancement of OMERACT's methodological approaches.

One of the TAG's primary functions is to provide comprehensive support to OMERACT Working Groups. This includes in-depth reviews of working group materials, offering constructive feedback, and ensuring their alignment with OMERACT's checklist for Domain Development and Instrument Selection. By doing so, the TAG actively contributes to the success and effectiveness of these working groups.

Central to OMERACT's vision, the TAG is instrumental in upholding the integrity and quality of outcome measurement in rheumatology, thereby significantly contributing to OMERACT’s overarching mission of enhancing outcome measurement in rheumatic diseases.
