Find Your Place North East, in collaboration with HEE, have launched a handy road and body map that guides you through how to get involved with research and research collaboratives. In the video above, Helen Ingoe, long time CORNET committee member, beautifully describes the benefits of pursuing research opportunities.
SWIFFT is the largest clinical trial of its kind about treating a fracture of the waist of the scaphoid. It was funded by the NIHR and led by Professor Joseph Dias in collaboration with University of York Trials Unit. The authors concluded that adult patients with scaphoid waist fractures displaced by 2 mm or less should have initial cast immobilisation, and any suspected non-unions should be confirmed and immediately fixed with surgery.
