Decide on the most important outcomes in childhood fractures.
The CORE-Kids study is a project to find out what are the most important outcomes and features of recovery to measure in research about children with broken bones. The study is based at the University of Nottingham, UK and so far has found a list of outcomes from interviews with families and from previous research studies.
We now need help to assess each of the outcomes that have been identified to pick out the most important. We are looking for people to join our electronic survey with some expertise in looking after children who have had a broken bone. Specifically, we are looking for people who are one (or more) of the following:
• Parents of children who have had a broken bone
• Doctors who treat children with broken bones (e.g. orthopaedic surgeons, emergency physicians, general practitioners)
• Paediatric nurses and therapists
• Researchers who has been involved with studies for children with broken bones
• Systematic reviewers who has been involved with reviews of studies for children with broken bones
The study involves completing three online forms (a Delphi survey) each of which can be finished in about 10 minutes. The first will be sent out in early October, the second in November and the third in January.
All participants who complete all three surveys will be provided with a certificate of research participation and will have the option to be acknowledged as an expert panellist on the scientific papers and presentations that result from this study.
