Many of the key questions in children's trauma involves the elbow. Despite elbow injuries occurring commonly, the types of treatment varies considerably in the UK.


The Elbow study seeks to identify a Core Outcome Set for injuries to the elbow in children. This means that we will develop a set of outcomes, following the COMET process, that should be measured in all studies of elbow injuries. The core outcome set is been developed in partnership with patients, parents, doctors and physiotherapists.
