AOTrauma Research calls for applications

08. September 2016

The AOTrauma Research Commission is pleased to announce open calls for proposals in the fields of bone infection & patient outcome.

 

AOTrauma Research (AOTR) continuously promotes high quality research ultimately relevant to the clinical management of trauma. With this, AOTR has allocated funds for research programs designed to address important clinical problems.

The AOTrauma Research Commission is pleased to announce the following two open calls for proposals, to support scientists and clinicians in the fields of bone infection and patient outcome.

Patient outcome

AOTrauma Research plans to fund a Clinical Priority Program (CPP) to promote research in the area of clinical outcome measurements of fracture treatment. Particular interest is the development and validation of tools that allow clinical outcome measurements of fracture treatment, however other relevant topics will also be considered. The aim is to support research that will either directly affect the patient outcome, or will generate ideas ultimately translatable to clinical practice.

Bone Infection

Infection continues to be one of the most serious complications in the management of musculoskeletal trauma. Infection rates associated with the surgical fixation of fractures range from 1% for closed fractures to as high as 40% for open fractures. Despite this, little has changed in the management of these infections over the last thirty years and there have been few advances in their prevention, management or treatment.

AOTrauma Research defined in 2012 the consortium Clinical Priority Program (CPP) Bone Infection to promote research in this area. The aim is to support research that will either directly affect the clinical management of bone infections, or will generate ideas ultimately translatable to clinical practice. With this initiative AOTrauma Research has now allocated a new fund over the next five years to further support projects to study infections related to the musculoskeletal system.
