Invite for applications: Joint RCS/NIAA Perioperative Care Systematic Reviews


Following on from the second successful Joint RCS/NIAA meeting on Perioperative Clinical Research, held on March 4 2015, The Royal College of Surgeons of England and the National Institute of Academic Anaesthesia have agreed to joint-fund three systematic reviews and are pleased to invite applications for systematic reviews of perioperative interventions to benefit patients.

The aim of this call is to support reviews of topics where the systematic review is seen as a step towards a funding application for a major clinical trial (+/- pilot) funded by an NIHR funding streams (e.g. HTA) or equivalent.

Only joint applications from teams including at least one surgeon AND one anaesthetist as well as at least three trainees will be considered. Leadership by trainees would be supported.

Each successful team will be expected to attend training days with in-house systematic review experts, at the RCS England offices, in London.

The deadline for applications is: 12pm Tuesday 1st September 2015. Applicants will be informed of the outcome of their applications by: Friday 18th September 2015. Interviews are scheduled for: Monday 5th October 2015, at the RCS England offices in London.
