New reporting statement (CONSORT extension) to guide intervention reporting Tammy Hoffmann, Centre for Research in Evidence-Based Practice, Bond University 22 September 2014 We read this paper of the reporting of smokingcessation interventions with interest. Of relevance to the Discussion in thepaper, readers may wish to know of a new initiative/reporting statementpublished earlier this year, around the time this paper was under review. Thenew guide is called TIDieR (Template for Intervention Description andReplication) and is aimed at improving the reporting of interventions in anyevaluative study design, particularly randomised trials. TIDieR is an official extension to the CONSORTand SPIRIT statements. The checklist and explanatory paper are freely available(BMJ, 2014, 348:g1687) and a Word version of the checklist can be downloadedfrom the EQUATOR Network (under Reporting guidelines, then TIDieR). Competing interests I am one of the developers of the TIDieR checklist and guide.
