Many congratulations to Jeremy Rodrigues who has been awarded an NIHR Postdoctoral Fellowship for a project entitled “Improving treatment decision making in hand surgery”. This aims to understand the variation in Dupuytren’s disease intervention in the NHS and to improve decision making in treatments.

Dupuytren’s disease affects up to 1 in 10 people in Britain, and is currently treated in a variety of ways including injections and surgery. Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) are already captured nationally but there is scope to improve them, and to better use the data generated.

Jeremy’s work will examine existing PROMs, understand why patients and surgeons choose treatments, and study the effect of treatment.  The findings will be combined in a decision support package to guide treatment choice.

Commenting on his award,  Jeremy stated “I am grateful to NIHR and the British Society for Surgery of the Hand for supporting this project and my further training.  This award reflects the wide-ranging academic and clinical support that I receive in Oxford and Thames Valley.  I am excited about starting the fellowship, which I believe will contribute to improved care for people with a common hand condition.”
