Within this page links to the key publications describing the development of the CAT are provided. You may cite or quote from these references in your protocol, analysis plan and subsequent publication.
The bibliography covers global experience with the CAT in clinical situations, demonstrating the responsiveness of the CAT when used to evaluate therapeutic interventions and onset and recovery from exacerbations. This will be updated annually. Production of the bibliography uses standard literature search terms on Medline, Embase, PubMed, Scopus & Searchlight, it does not include reference to all studies which have utilised CAT as an outcome measure. For these studies, searches of other resources should be made.
The list of ePRO providers covers systems which have been endorsed by the CAT Governance Board. Other providers and new devices will be approved and the list updated at least annually. The user guide provides further information.
