In March 2018, the Heart Surgery Priority Setting Partnership launched its Initial Survey. We wanted to find the questions that could be used in future research, asked by people dealing with heart surgery every day.
Over 600 people submitted more than 1,000 questions to the Initial Survey. During analysis, duplicate questions were combined and the summary questions were entered into a systematic review to eliminate those which are already being addressed by research.
The remaining 45 unanswered questions are listed in this Second Survey. Questions have been grouped into categories, listed below in alphabetical order:
- Bypass surgery (CABG)
- Intraoperative management
- Longer-term outcomes
- Patient selection/risk stratification
- Post-operative management & complications
- Pre- and post-operative care
- Specific diseases & conditions
- Valve surgery
- Other themes
The closing date is 10th June 2019.
