Call for Validators

GlobalSurg 3 Validation Study

Data validation for GlobalSurg 3 will take place between October 2018 and February 2019. The purpose of the validation study is to demonstrate that the dataset is of high quality to facilitate publication in a high impact medical journal.

The validation study will involve checking case ascertainment and examining a small number of data points at each hospital. The results of the validation will not be used to change the primary dataset, only to observe how accurate the primary data is.

Each participating hospital will require a single additional collaborator to act as the data validator. All validators will be cited as authors on publications arising from the study. 
To be a data validator a collaborator:
  1. must work at a hospital contributing primary data to the study
  2. must have access to hospital records
  3. must not have taken part in the study already as a data collector
