The GI COS Team would be grateful if you would consider taking part in the GI COS study.

The GI COS study aims to produce an agreed core outcome set for the recovery of bowel function after gastrointestinal surgery and surgical disease.  We hope this will help standardise the design and reporting of studies in these important areas.

They are inviting surgeons and healthcare professionals around the world to take part and ask you to complete three short surveys over the next 6 months to explore your opinions of outcomes used in research of ileus and small bowel obstruction. The surveys are simple to navigate and should take no more than 10 minutes to complete online. They offer collaborator status to anybody who completes all three surveys.

If you are interested, please follow this link to access some further information about the study and the people who are organising it. You will also find directions on how to provide consent and complete the first survey.
