PERCEIVE – PrEdiction of Risk and Communication of outcomE followIng major lower limb amputation- a collaboratiVE study

Major lower limb amputation is a life-changing event for patients and communicating risk/benefit is a vital part of shared decision making.

Help us explore amputation risk perception by engaging in the PERCEIVE study – a prospective observational study for international centres

This project is looking at major lower limb amputation risk perception, and would involve comparing of outcome predictions of surgeons, anaesthetists and specialist physiotherapists with actual observed patient outcomes.

We will also evaluate the ability of existing risk scoring tools to accurately predict outcomes.

Site setup and authorship will be similar to other studies successfully delivered by VERN (GIVE and COVER)
