Come and help design a Multi-centre Randomised Controlled Trial on Metacarpal Shaft Fractures: Surgery versus Non-Surgical Treatment
Friday 23rd November 2018, 09:30-16:30, University of Nottingham
Free to BSSH Members and Associates
6 CME points
The aim of this workshop is to develop the framework for a multicentre study to address this question, which was prioritised in 2016-17.
This is a hands-on workshop where NHS clinicians, patients and researchers will come together to determine the best study design. It will comprise a mix of short presentations by research methodologists and clinicians, discussion with patients, small group work and open debate. Delegates are positively encouraged to contribute to the discussions and debate, and all can express their opinions.
This workshop is open to all BSSH Members and Associates with an interest in increasing the research evidence base for the treatment of Hand Fractures. There are 30 spaces for surgeons.
We want to include Hand Therapists, so if a therapist involved in the treatment of these injuries at your centre would like to join (also free), he/she should also enrol.
The meeting will build on the successful 2017 meeting which led to POINT: a multi-centre RCT of surgery versus splint treatment for proximal phalanx shaft fractures in adults. This was developed into a multi-centre grant proposal endorsed by the BSSH and BAHT and currently shortlisted for Stage 2 of the NIHR HTA funding scheme.
The meeting is on the University of Nottingham campus with ample free parking onsite, direct tram services from the railway station (10 minutes) as well as a Park and Ride facility close to the M1.
