The CRAFFT trial has now opened sites to recruitment.


Oxford Trauma's CRAFFT trial has received OCTRU green light and is now open to recruitment!

This study is investigating if treating a radius fracture (in children) by applying a plaster cast without an operation is just as effective as having an operation.


A message from the Trial Manager:

'We are delighted to announce that the CRAFFT study is open to recruitment now for 3 sites: Macclesfield, Ormskirk and Milton Keynes. Many more sites to follow.

Please visit our website at for more information – you will love it!'
