Local: CORNET Collaborative Orthopaedic Research Network
National: Pre-Hospital Trainee Operated Research Network (PHOTON)
We are a group of non-consultant grade, pre-hospital, doctors who are passionate about improving the quality of pre-hospital research. In order to achieve this, we have collaborated to enable multicentre pre-hospital research to be conducted. Our ambition is to expand to include pre-hospital practitioners other than doctors once we have proof of concept and a successful output.
National: National Trauma Research and Innovation Collaborative (NaTRIC)
NaTRIC is the UK National Trauma Research and Innovation Collaborative. Our aim is to deliver high quality audit and research projects at a national level which will improve care of the injured.
We are the first truly multidisciplinary research collaborative in the UK. Anyone with an interest in the care of injured can get involved – nurses, paramedics, doctors from a number of specialties, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and more attended our inaugural research meeting in June 2018.
