Broken Bones of the Upper Limb in People over 50
Fractures of the Shoulder, Arm or Wrist
We would be grateful if you could complete this online survey by adding as many questions as you would like about broken bones of the upper limb, in the sections provided.
Oxford Trauma has launched a James Lind Alliance Research Priority Setting Exercise (PSP) in the area of Broken Bones of the Upper Limb in People over 50.
There is little research about treatment and care for these patients. They want to hear from patients, carers and healthcare professionals who have experience of this. With your help, they aim to produce a Top 10 questions that could be answered by research.
Upper limb fractures (broken bones) include those of the shoulder (collarbone and shoulder girdle), upper arm, elbow, forearm, wrist and hand. These fractures are very common and often have long-lasting effects. They can lead to temporary or permanent disability. The treatment received is critically important in minimising this.
We would like to invite you to participate in the first survey, which will take you approximately 10 – 15 minutes to answer. This can be found here.
Alternatively, please contact the PSP Co-ordinator if you would like a paper version of the survey [email protected] or 01865 223114.
