Royal College of Surgeons Bristol Surgical Trials Centre
We bring together methodologists and academic surgeons in multiple NHS hospitals to conduct large pragmatic randomised controlled trials (RCTs) to answer important questions of relevance to patients, surgeons, and the NHS. Our goals are to improve evidence-based surgery and optimise trial design and delivery.
Optimising trial design and delivery
● We work to develop new and improved methods for designing and conducting complex surgical trials
● We work closely with the MRC Trials Methodology Research partnership and, previously, the MRC ConDuCT-II Hub for Trials Methodology Research.
● We also provide methodological expertise to those who wish to design their own surgical RCTs. To find out more, contact us
