MacOrtho is proud to announce that INORMUS (International Orthopaedic Multicentre Fracture Study: A Multicentre Prospective Cohort Study) abstract has been accepted for presentation at the launch of The Lancet Commission on Global Surgery at the Royal Society of Medicine, London, UK, on Monday, April 27th, 2015. This was submitted by MacOrtho resident, Dr. C.J. Foote, on behalf of the INORMUS Investigators group. This abstract will also be published in a Lancet supplement to accompany The Lancet Commission on Global Surgery.
INORMUS is a global, multi-center, prospective, observational study that will recruit 40,000 patients to better understand the global burden of fractures in the developing world. After a successful Investigators Meeting in May 2014, the study team network has expanded to 30 investigators from 17 countries across the globe. Furthermore, the study has now received funding from the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and McMaster Surgical Associates.
The INORMUS study continues to garner international recognition as an important and timely research initiative to address the growing incidence of musculoskeletal injuries in the developing world, which is in large part attributable to road-traffic accidents.
