  • Outcome measures can be defined as primary, secondary, or exploratory.
  • By determining your outcome measures in advance, and categorizing their importance, you can appropriately design your study.
  • Pre-specifying your outcomes and the instruments you plan to use can also help ensure that you do not have incomplete data collection.
