A charge of The Hip Society's Research Committee this year is to establish and facilitate a platform for members to be involved with multi-center research studies. These studies can include any topic related to hip arthroplasty, hip joint preservation, health policy, patient outcomes, etc. that may be best served in a multicenter fashion.
To that end, the Research Committee would like to request proposals from members of the Society for possible multi-center research studies. These proposals will then be vetted among members of the committee for feasibility, alignment with the mission of The Hip Society, and their clinical priority. Funding might be available in January of 2017 but is not definitive at this time. (Studies that are urgent in nature might be brought up to the tri-organizational level (AAHKS, The Hip Society, The Knee Society) for more in-depth consideration for funding.)
We encourage you to send any proposals or study ideas that could be facilitated by this platform.
When submitting your proposals, please include:
A one-page summary of the study with proposed methodology;
A statement on why you think this study would benefit from a multi-center approach;
A proposed budget;
A statement on how your study aligns with the mission of The Hip Society.
