Professor Candy McCabe and her research team from the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases in Bath have asked if CRPSUK members can help with their next application for a research grant.
First of all on this occasion you have to live in England. Sorry not to be able to include the rest of the UK it is not that the research team are not interested in you lovely people who live in Scotland, Ireland and Wales it’s just that the funding on this occasion is for English Health Services only.
I have been asked to point out that your responses will be shared in Bath and that by sending directly to the dedicated email your responses will not be completely anonymous to the research team. Of course the usual code of confidentiality applies and data will not be attributed to named individuals. (Dedicated email appears at the foot of this email)
The research will be focussed on trying to improve the detection and care of people at risk of CRPS immediately after fracture of a wrist or ankle . These are the most common types of fracture.
There are four questions to answer for the research section and question five is a note of the county where you live so that the research team can analyse the data by region..
