SPOC-CBT Trial Receives Grant from CIHR

MacOrtho is excited to announce that the SPOC-CBT trial (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to Improve Patient Outcomes Following Internal Fixation of Extremity Fractures: A Randomized Controlled Trial) was ranked fourth out of 51 proposals and has been funded by CIHR.  

We will be starting screening and enrollment at HGH in early February and will be moving ahead with start-up activities at our participating sites in Canada, USA, and Europe over the next few months. 

Funding details:
Funder: Canadian Institutes of Health Research
Grant title: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to Improve Patient Outcomes Following Internal Fixation of Extremity Fractures: A Randomized Controlled Trial (SPOC-CBT)
Amount: $ $2,275,876
Duration: 4 years (2018 to 2022)

The goal of this study is to determine if CBT is effective in reducing ongoing pain and improving quality of life in fracture patients who show illness beliefs that may place them at risk for developing ongoing pain.
