We (researchers at Brunel University London and the University of Oxford) are conducting a survey to try to get a sense of what therapists involved in the rehabilitation of patients with CRPS do with their patients. The need for this research is clear. All recent international clinical guidelines recommend rehabilitation therapies as the core treatment for CRPS, yet there is little clinical evidence to guide practice. If we are to develop a clear model of best practice and rigorously evaluate it then we first need a clearer sense of what current practice is.
So if you are a clinician currently working in a rehabilitation context and you are currently involved in the management of patients with complex regional pain syndrome (types I or II) then it would be great if you could take the time to more information can be found here:
The closing date for the survey is 1st November 2015. This research has been approved by the Research Ethics Committee of the Department of Clinical Sciences, Brunel University London.
