The aim of this simple service evaluation project is to assess our current management of CMCJ osteoarthritis. The project should only take a very small amount of time for clinicians to take part and all collaborators will be recognised as co-authors on any future presentations/publications of this work.
You can take part if you are:
- Clinician who see CMCJ OA patients at interface/hub level as direct referrals from primary care
- Your centre is happy for you to take part, note service evaluation projects require no ethical approval as clearly stated on NRES website
The project consists of:
Service evaluation of 5 patients with diagnosis of CMCJ OA to assess what treatment they have undergone prior to hub/interface review
Short telephone interview to explore your current approach to managing CMCJ OA
If your unit has a CMCJ OA pathway then it would be great if you could send me a copy
If you want to take part or have any questions then please email email@example.com – it would be very useful if you could state your name, job title, the centre at which you work, and the CCG under which this centre is contained.
