To all those who have had an Intramedullary Nail (IM Nail or Rod) procedure, would you please take a few moments to complete the 10 Question Survey (via the link below) about your experiences, it’s a mix of multiple choice and optional free text questions.
As such little information exists about going through the experience of having an IM Nail, the recovery period and possible ongoing problems, I thought it would be useful to collect a mixture of quantitative and qualitative data. The aim is to share the collated data and analysis with everyone.
To complete the anonymous survey, please use the following link:
If you have any questions about this questionnaire or would prefer to have it posted to you or conducted over the telephone, please email me.
Update (25th January 2013): Thank you to all who have filled in the survey so far (95 responses!) … I will wait until I have got a 100 before writing up the findings, but may share some early findings before then.
I shall also be putting together a survey about IM Nail removal.
