You or a loved one may suffer from a musculoskeletal disorder; been involved in a major limb trauma, or had a joint replacement surgery in the past. We know that the pain can be incredibly debilitating.
Musculoskeletal disorders account for over 30% of patients who visit their GPs and 40% of all recorded pain. Joint Action, The Orthopaedic Research Appeal of the BOA, can improve the lives of many, including those who suffer or have suffered from Arthritis, Major Trauma, Bone Cancer and Paediatric conditions with your help.
The aim of the BOA Orthopaedic Surgery Research Centre (BOSRC) is to ensure that orthopaedic treatments are based on the best quality evidence. BOSRC helps surgeons to obtain funding for significant research projects from large funders such as the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).
Since forming in 2014, BOSRC has secured now over £11 million in external funding for nine new clinical trials! The BOA is also, for the first time, sponsoring Surgical Specialty Leads for trauma and orthopaedics. They will work collaboratively with the BOA, our funded clinical trials unit and with other stakeholders to make progress in supporting development of research and trials.
This holiday, please consider giving to Joint Action to help make a difference to the future of Trauma and Orthopaedic research. We really do appreciate the support you have given us.
Best wishes and seasons greetings,
The Joint Action Team
