Taking part

This page explains the DRAFT3-CASP Study for people who might be interested in joining

General information

1,894 adult patients with a fracture of their distal radius will be invited to take part from hospitals across the UK. Half of these people will be treated in a cast and half in a removable splint. All of the patients will be given the same information and advice about their injury and their recovery.

Which treatment a person gets will be decided by a computer. Everyone has an equal chance of getting either treatment. After three months everyone will receive a questionnaire. The questions will ask about what activities they can do, if they have any problems, about their quality of life and any costs that have been incurred because of the injury.
