Current Surveys

Please see a number of independent research surveys below. The researchers involved would appreciate it if you could take the time to complete these by the deadline dates given.

BSSH Census

This survey was last held ten years ago and the high response rate enabled analysis that helped direct hand surgery over recent years. The information will be used to help workforce planning and see trends in hand surgery in the UK . It may also highlight the disparity in hand service provision across the UK. The results of this survey will be presented at the BSSH Autum meeting in Cardiff this May.

Please complete this survey here by Tuesday 31st July 2018.

Managing C2 Fractures in the Elderly

The purpose of the study is to inform current UK practice – it appears that there is massive variation in how these injuries are treated from soft collars to halos and everything in between. Given the high mortality and morbidity of these injuries, this information is being collected to gather a snap shot of what is happening at present to build a case for an RCT around treatment of C2 fractures in the elderly age group.

Please complete this survey here by the end of July.

Members Survey on Winter Pressure and Waiting Times

Winter pressures and commissioning restrictions affecting elective orthopaedic surgery have seen widespread disruptions to services in many parts of the country. Access to surgery and waiting times are a current concern to the BOA. To gain further insight into the extent of the situation, the BOA are asking for further information on the effects in your area.

The Educational Value of the Daily Trauma Meeting Survey

Zakir Haider (SpR) is conducting a survey on the educational value of the daily trauma meeting. Zakir aims to explore how trauma meetings are structured, what aspects of trauma meetings trainees find educationally useful and how these meetings could be improved to maximise educational benefit for trainees nationally. The aim is to publish these results which Zakir hopes will help improve trauma meetings. We would be grateful if you could kindly spend five minutes answering this survey based upon the trauma meeting in your current workplace. Responses are anonymous. Thank you.

Fracture Registry Survey

Within the framework of the EU Project Baltic Fracture Competence Center (BFCC), a fracture register with complication recording is created. In the pilot phase, a Delphi process is used to work out which items should be captured. Dr Jasper Frese would like to invite members to complete the following short survey: Fracture Registry Survey. On one hand, the register shall be used for clinical research purposes, but on the other hand it should also cover population-medical issues and enable retrospective product safety assurance in trauma implants.

BASK Revision Knee Replacement Priority Setting Partnership (PSP)

Knee Surgeons – Help us guide future research about problematic knee replacements

The British Association for Surgery of the Knee (BASK) are running a Priority Setting Partnership with the James Lind Alliance (JLA). They want patients, carers and healthcare professionals to highlight uncertainties relating to the assessment, management and rehabilitation of ‘patients with a problematic knee replacement’. This will identify top 10 research priorities and guide funders for future research. Please complete the survey to tell them the top three questions that you would like to see answered by future research.
