National Orthopaedic Collaborative - DIS - the DRAFFT Impact Study.
The National Orthopaedic Collaborative group is soon to begin data collection for DIS (the DRAFFT Impact Study), led by the Birmingham Orthopaedic Network ( www.bon.ac.uk ).
The project aims to establish current practice for acute adult distal radius fractures treated surgically in the UK.
DIS represents a quick win for collaborators, as we are including the last 20 cases managed in 2017 at each site. Yes, that's n=20 only to collect retrospectively per site.
Our dry run indicates that collaboration will take around 90-120 minutes once records have been located. Data collection will end July 31st 2018.
