|A CORKA of a Collaboration|
Objective of the Poster
To illustrate ‘A CORKA of a Collaboration’ which relates to the innovatively collaborative model of practice devised by the research teams at Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Dorset HealthCare University NHS Foundation Trust in order to successfully deliver the CORKA Study: COmmunity based Rehabilitation after Knee Arthroplasty: A prospective individually randomised controlled trial. Participants were randomised to receive either home-based rehabilitation (intervention arm) or usual care (physiotherapy delivered locally in the outpatient department) to determine the difference in outcome for people undergoing knee arthroplasty (knee replacement).
The poster illustrates the complexities of the trial journey and clinical pathway facilitated by Dorset HealthCare University Foundation Trust and Dorset County Hospital NHS foundation Trusts’ research teams, outlining many of the facets of the collaborative process, the challenges associated and the solutions developed.
