Vfrac research study on back pain

The Vfrac research study is planning on producing a checklist for use in primary care to identify older women with back pain due to un-diagnosed broken bones in the back.

As part of this study, Vfrac are asking a variety of people about their opinions on what currently happens to an older woman who has back pain (either new or ongoing). This information will be used to check that the Vfrac results make sense, and to try and work out whether the use of this checklist in GP surgeries will save the NHS money, and improve patient quality of life.

Completing this short, but vital questionnaire should take less than 10 minutes to complete. The University of Bristol has confirmed that ethics approval is not required for this questionnaire. The results will kept confidential and anonymised before analysing.
