The impact of surgical site infection on hospitalisation, treatment costs, and health-related quality of life after vascular surgery (2020)
Journal Article
Totty, J. P., Moss, J. W. E., Mealing, S. J., Posnett, J. W., Chetter, I. C., Smith, G. E., …Posnett, J. (in press). The impact of surgical site infection on hospitalisation, treatment costs, and health-related quality of life after vascular surgery. International wound journal, https://doi.org/10.1111/iwj.13526

Surgical site infections (SSI) substantially increase costs for healthcare providers because of additional treatments and extended patient recovery. The objective of this study was to assess the cost and health‐related quality of life impact of SSI,...

A randomised clinical trial of ultrasound guided cannulation of difficult fistulae for dialysis access (2020)
Journal Article
Latham, R., Smith, G., Chetter, I., Carradice, D., Cai, P., Eves, J., …Lathan, R. (in press). A randomised clinical trial of ultrasound guided cannulation of difficult fistulae for dialysis access. The journal of vascular access, https://doi.org/10.1177/1129729820954725

Background: Arteriovenous fistulae (AVF) are preferred for dialysis access but require accurate cannulation for effective dialysis. Evidence supports improvements in cannulation and complication rates using ultrasound guidance (USG) in cannulating ot...

Journal Article
Long, J., Meethan, K., Arundel, C., Clarke, E., Firth, A., Sylvester, M., & Chetter, I. (2020). Exploring feedback from research nurses in relation to the design and conduct of a randomised controlled trial of wound care treatments: a sequential, dependent, mixed-methods study. Journal of tissue viability, 29(4), 342-347. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jtv.2020.07.007

Background Research nurse involvement in trials is crucial to successful conduct, however their feedback on trial design and conduct is not necessarily always collected and shared. This study was designed to explore research nurse feedback in rela...
