BOTA / BONE – Paediatric Orthopaedic Trauma Snapshot [POTS]
With the roaring success of the BONE / BOTA Lost Tribe audit project (221 collaborators in 101 hospitals), BOTA is launching our 2nd national audit project, the Paediatric Orthopaedic Trauma Snapshot (POTS). POTS aims to identify what paediatric Orthopaedic trauma is treated surgically in the UK over the course of a week, and audit the surgical management of paediatric supracondylar fractures of the distal humerus.
Like the Lost Tribe project, which will be presented at the BOA Congress (podium), SICOT conference (poster), and about to be submitted for publication (with all collaborators as named co-first authors!), the POTS audit project will also run on an equal equity basis. That means that if you participate in the project and submit data, you will be a named co-first author on any presentations and publications that inevitably result from such a large multi-centre study. Additionally, like The Lost Tribe audit project, we have made the data collection extremely simple.
