The Respiratory Effectiveness Group (REG) (www. effectivenessevaluation.org) is a global network of respiratory clinicians, researchers, outcomes researchers and allied health professionals with a shared interest in real-world research. Founded in early 2013, the REG is an investigator-led collaborative organisation that works to raise the quality and profile of real-life research by standardising methodologies, setting standards and applying high-quality methods to address evidence gaps and unmet research needs.
