GlobalSurg 3 – What happens next?

A massive thank you to everyone who has taken part in primary data collection

847 teams from 429 hospitals in 84 countries have now entered 15,396 complete patient records in to the study


Over the past few months we have had a period of intense data checking and data cleaning to ensure all teams have complete datasets with no missing variables. Thank you to all teams that have added and amended data in response to our emails – this is ensuring the GlobalSurg 3 dataset is of the highest possible quality.

Following the conclusion of data validation, data analysis and manuscript preparation will get underway. We are aiming to publish the manuscript in a top medical journal. Thank you for your patience during the analysis phase – we will keep everyone informed of progress via this newsletter.
