MoVe Com Study - the BASS trainee collaborative

10/11/2021 13:39 | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The BASS Trainee Collaborative (2021-2022) would like to invite you to take part in our survey-based project relating to the management of Osteoporotic Vertebral Compression Fractures (MoVe Com).

Current guidance from NICE states that percutaneous vertebroplasty and balloon kyphoplasty without stenting (Cement Augmentation techniques) are recommended as options for treating osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures in people who have severe ongoing pain after a recent, unhealed vertebral fracture despite optimal non-invasive pain management options and in whom the pain has been confirmed to be at the level of the fracture by physical examination and imaging.

The study aims to assess current practice in terms of use of non-invasive management technique options and use of cement augmentation techniques within your unit.

If your unit regularly reviews patients following vertebral compression fractures, then you are eligible to take part.

We are encouraging trainees to take part and sign up as trainee collaborators. If your trainee would like to be involved please ask them to register themselves by emailing our BASS Medical Student representative on annielaw96@outlook.com. The trainee collaborator shall be responsible for collecting the survey responses from the spinal surgeons working within your unit. Each collaborator will receive collaborator status with each subsequent presentation or publication from this project.

Those spinal surgeon consultants who would like to complete the survey directly, please access the link here: https://forms.gle/cFWyFpmU5zphqnGr7

We hope you will join us in making this collaborative research project a great success.
Many thanks
