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 stream (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.

Deadline for applications: 12pm on Tuesday 1st September 2015.

Applicants will be informed of the outcome of their applications by: Friday 18th September 2015.

Interview date: Monday 5th October 2015. Interviews will be held at the RCS England offices, in London. Any changes to this date will be communicated via the relevant web page on either the RCS or NIAA website.
