About the Contextual Factors Working Group

In 2012, ‘contextual factors’ was introduced for the first time in the OMERACT process, but identifying, understanding and approaching contextual factors proved difficult. The Contextual Factors Working Group (CFWG) was formed to provide guidance on how to address these challenges. An essential part of the research plan includes developing an operational definition and guidance on how to address contextual factors in rheumatology trials, when developing core outcome measurement sets
