The aim of NOSTRA is to deliver high quality, well-designed multicentre clinical research. NOSTRA plans to use the surgical collaborative model that has worked well in other regions. You can find our current projects listed below.
Interested in collaborating with NOSTRA and have your name included as collaborating author in publications? If so, come to our meetings with project ideas.
Once a project is chosen, it is ran by NOSTRA. A local lead for each site will be appointed from those who wants to participate in the North East. Local lead’s roles include:-
Recruiting local collaborators
Ensuring the project is locally registered appropriately as either a research or an audit
Co-ordinating data collection at their site
Being responsible for central data submission at the conclusion of the project
The data collection will be guided by both the NOSTRA project lead and the local leads to ensure timely completion of projects.
Information of each project can be found on this NOSTRAsurgery.com website.
Those who contribute to the completion of a project will be recognised by NOSTRA certification and will be named as a collaborating author on subsequent publications from the study.
