NIHR Postdoctoral Fellowship awarded to Associate member to work with BSSH’s UK Hand Registry
Jeremy Rodrigues, an associate member of the society, has been awarded a postdoctoral fellowship by the NIHR. This 5-year award was supported by BSSH, and will be administered at The University of Oxford, where Jeremy currently trains.
Jeremy previously undertook his MSc and PhD projects in Nottingham, where he was supervised by Prof Tim Davis from the BSSH.
The project will involve refining the patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) captured in the BSSH’s UK Hand Registry.
This will be combined with studies of how and why surgeons and patients makes decisions about which treatment to choose for Dupuytren’s disease.
The project then aims to build a computer package that will be available to registry users when consulting prospective patients. It will aim to predict how patients might fare if they underwent different types of treatment for Dupuytren’s disease.
This project, along with all of the other analyses that are run in the UK Hand Registry, will be most effective if the registry contains data with a true reflection of UK hand surgery. Please consider entering your patients into the registry to support outputs that may be helpful for your revalidation and to improve initiatives like this, that aim to provide useful resources for the society.
