About GET-IT

GET-IT stands for the Glossary of Evaluation Terms for Informed Treatment choices.

The aim of this glossary is to facilitate informed choices about treatments by promoting consistent use of plain language and providing plain language explanations of terms that people might need to understand if they wish to assess claims about treatments.

The glossary is specifically intended to be useful to people without a research background, particularly those wanting to make an informed choice about a treatment, communicating research evidence to the general public, or teaching others about how to assess claims made about treatments.

GET-IT has five features that we believe make it different from other related glossaries:
