Dear RSTN Member,
Please would you be kind enough to take part in an NIHR-funded survey exploring return to work after carpal tunnel release. The aim of this survey is to describe UK clinical practice.
The survey is part of a larger programme of research investigating return to work after carpal tunnel release, which is being run by the Arthritis Research UK – MRC Centre for Musculoskeletal Health and Work at the University of Southampton.
The questionnaire is anonymous, contains a maximum of 17 questions, and is expected to take approximately 5 minutes to complete. If you do not routinely perform carpal tunnel release procedures, or treat patients following carpal tunnel release, we would still like you to respond to section one. A full participant information sheet is included at the beginning of the survey.
Your support is really appreciated.
Surgeons, you can access the survey here: www.isurvey.soton.ac.uk/19892
Therapists, you can access the survey here: www.isurvey.soton.ac.uk/20600
The survey has been reviewed and approved by the University of Southampton Faculty of Medicine Ethics Committee (reference: ERGO 20993).
Many thanks in advance,
