Congratulations Kim Madden

Published: April 14th, 2014

Kim MaddenMacOrtho would like to congratulate Kim Madden on securing a Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR) Doctoral Scholarship for her upcoming PhD studies, including the proposed Prospective Abuse and Intimate Partner Violence Surgical Evaluation (PRAISE-2) study.

PRAISE-2 aims to build upon the knowledge gained from conducting the PRAISE-1 prevalence study. The recently completed PRAISE-1 cross-sectional prevalence study found that 1 in 6 women attending fracture clinics self-reported a history IPV in the past year.

The primary purpose of PRAISE-2 is to determine the feasibility of a large multinational cohort study that will examine surgical outcomes (time to fracture healing, fracture-related adverse events, and return to pre-injury function) among those injured women who report, or do not report, a history of abuse. This will be the first study to evaluate differences in orthopaedic outcomes between abused and non-abused women and preliminarily assess whether an injury can lead to worsening abuse by an intimate partner.
