Resumen

Background: Incidence and prevalence studies of neurologicaldisorders play an extremely important role in hypothesis-generation, assessing the burden of disease and planningof health services. However, the assessment of diseaseestimates is hindered by the poor quality of reporting for such studies. We developed the Standards of Reporting ofNeurological Disorders STROND guideline in order to improvethe quality of reporting of neurological disorders fromwhich prevalence, incidence, and outcomes can be extractedfor greater generalisability. Methods: The guideline wasdeveloped using a 3-round Delphi technique in order toidentify the ‘basic minimum items’ important for reporting,as well as some additional ‘ideal reporting items.’ An e-consultationprocess was then used in order to gauge opinionby external neuroepidemiological experts on the appropriatenessof the items included in the checklist. Findings: Theresultant 15 items checklist and accompanying recommendationswere developed using a similar process and structuredin a similar manner to the Strengthening of the Reportingof Observational Studies in Epidemiology checklist forease of use. This paper presents the STROND checklist withan explanation and elaboration for each item, as well as examplesof good reporting from the neuroepidemiologicalliterature. Conclusions: The introduction and use of theSTROND checklist should lead to more consistent, transparentand contextualised reporting of descriptive neuroepidemiologicalstudies that should facilitate international comparisons,and lead to more accessible information for multiplestakeholders, ultimately supporting better healthcaredecisions for neurological disorders.Nota general
