Development and implementation of a core measurement set for reconstructive breast surgery 

The University of Bristol is running a study which aims to develop a core measurement set (CMS) for reconstructive surgery.  Outcome reporting in breast reconstruction is inconsistent so results from individual studies and across different procedures cannot be compared.  This limits the value of current research for patients and professionals.

To address this problem a CMS has been developed.  This is a minimum set of outcomes selected by patients and health professionals, which should be measured as a minimum in all research and audit studies of reconstructive breast surgery, and has been published in the British Journal of Surgery.

Help is required to develop the core measurement set for reconstructive breast surgery.  Participation will involved completing two questionnaires, approximately 6 weeks apart.  Each questionnaire will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.
