SCIENCE trial logo, redesigned to include New Zealand and Australian themes

We continue to spread SCIENCE throughout the world….with the opening of the SCIENCE study in New Zealand. We are grateful to the team in StarShip hospital for joining the study and to the StarShip foundation for funding their involvement in the study. This means that SCIENCE is now open outside the UK in both Australia (Sydney and Melbourne) and New Zealand (Auckland). We have even more sites planned “down-under”, and hope to answer this important question about children’s elbow injuries even faster
