About Us

The objective of the UK Perioperative Medicine Clinical Trials Network (CTN) is to create an environment which allows everyone with an interest in perioperative care to make a meaningful but realistic contribution to clinical trials and observational studies.

The CTN creates working relationships between trial organisers and investigators in individual hospitals, creating recognisable roles for every member of the group, even though the CTN projects will be large collaborations. This will promote engagement with clinical trials, and early implementation of the findings.

The CTN supports research projects involving the recruitment of patients where the aim is to improve outcomes following surgical treatment. This does not include research into surgical techniques except where these overlap with perioperative medicine. Our focus is on large clinical trials but some smaller studies will be appropriate for CTN support, especially if these are likely to translate into subsequent larger trials.
