Successful recruitment to GRASP clinical trial

We have successfully recruited 30 patients to the Getting it Right in Addressing Shoulder Pain (GRASP) clinical trial, three months ahead of target. Well done to the clinician teams for demonstrating fantastic dedication to offering research opportunities to our patients and taking part in important research that will help inform clinical best practice.

The GRASP clinical trial is being led by the University of Oxford and is looking at the best ways to treat shoulder pain in people with a rotator cuff disorder. The trial is testing two different types of physiotherapy treatment pathways that are routinely used to treat people with rotator cuff problems. We are also testing whether a routinely given pain relief injection also improves recovery in people with rotator cuff problems.
