INTEGRATE - call for collaborators
INTEGRATE is pleased to launch a national retrospective multicentre audit of Head and Neck Squamous cell carcinoma Multidisciplinary Team meetings (MDT). This is an exciting opportunity to be involved in impactful, collaborative multi-centre research.
WHO? This audit has been developed by INTEGRATE (The UK ENT Trainee Research Network) head and neck subcommittee.
WHY? In the UK, the MDT approach is the gold standard of care for patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinomas. Due to the regional variation in resources and demographic characteristics, the standardisation of head and neck management is difficult. As such, this audit aims to understand the decision making, pathway compliance, and outcomes of patients discussed at the Head and Neck MDT across the UK.
WHAT?We need ENT representatives from UK Head and Neck MDTs to submit data on the diagnostic pathway, management, and outcomes for patients presented at the MDT. Full instructions and links to all the study documents can be found here. We will also be asking that a representative from each MDT completes a survey about their MDT.
Each centre can have a maximum of one local Site Lead and one Consultant, plus a maximum of ONE Collaborator. Site Leads, Consultants and Collaborators will be acknowledged on all subsequent presentations and publications (as per INTEGRATE term of reference).
HOW? To register and collaborate on this study, please complete the registration form (so we can stay in touch) and then follow instructions here: https://entintegrate.co.uk/head-neck-mdt-snapshot-audit. If you are a trainee-grade, we recommend that you get support from your MDT Lead prior to registering. The data submission window is now open, and will close on 1st March 2024.
All BAHNO members should have received a link to a SurveyMonkey from the President. Should you not be able to find the email in your inbox, please complete the survey here.
It should only take about 6 minutes - and your help in forming the future of BAHNO would be appreciated.
