Developing better ways to evaluate new surgical techniques and devices
The Surgical Innovation theme is linked to the Bristol Centre for Surgical Research (CSR), both of which are directed by Professor Jane Blazeby. This streamlines opportunities to design and deliver better ways of evaluating innovations (BRC work) before full evaluations of promising interventions within randomised controlled trials (CSR work).
We will be using survey, consensus and qualitative research methods to explore how to best provide information and informed consent to patients.
Our plans based on our new work in this field and our surgical and methodological expertise and leadership.
We will conduct a Network Meta-Analysis (NWA), which enables the simultaneous comparison of multiple interventions in a single analysis.
We aim to investigate whether it is possible to develop a Core Outcome Set to use in early phase studies of trials of invasive procedures and/or devices.
Our research is developing ways to support people through their joint replacement operations, so they can have the best change of a good outcome afterwards.
