Randomised controlled trials in surgery
This theme focuses on designing and conducting surgical trials and developing methods to improve randomised controlled trials (RCTs) in surgery:
- The design, leadership and delivery of RCTs in surgery (e.g. The ProtecT, By-Band Sleeve, TiTre 2, ROCs, CIPHER and Sunflower Studies).
- The development of new and better methods for designing and conducting RCTs in surgery. This is achieved by working closely with the MRC ConDuCT-II Hub for Trials Methodology Research.
