Advancing paediatric surgery through education and research

Survey of UK paediatric surgeons’ attitude towards non-operative treatment of acute appendicitis

Please note this survey will close on 4th June 2018.

We would be grateful if you would please complete a questionnaire regarding your views on non-operative treatment of acute appendicitis in children. This questionnaire is part of an NIHR-funded study to determine the feasibility of completing a future randomised controlled trial (RCT) comparing non-operative treatment with surgery for children with acute uncomplicated appendicitis. We want to establish whether a future RCT is feasible by establishing interest in this topic among UK paediatric surgeons, and having feedback on a potential trial scenario.
