    ***QE, Good Hope and Russell's Hall FULL***Gain collaborative authorship on PubMed-indexed publications from the dataset***

    *Few spaces left for Data Collection Periods 2 & 3* Just to clear any confusion, you do not need to follow-up for 30 days everyday. There is a daily 14 day follow-up post-surgery and then retrospectively reviewing any complications on the 30th day*

    The Student Audit in Research and Surgery (STARSurg) collaborative, which is a national, student-led audit and research network active throughout the UK and ROI ran the Outcomes After Kidney injury in Surgery (OAKS) audit. For this year, STARSurg is running the IMAGINE study across the UK, which will investigate the incidence of ileus following surgery.
    The dates for the data collection are as follows:
    - Period 2: 12 Feb 2018 ? 26 Feb 2018
    - Period 3: 5 Mar 2018 ? 19 Mar 2018

    With regards to the study, I am currently looking for medical students in their clinical years who will be happy to get involved in this audit. This will involve working with a group of medical students to register the audit at your hospital, collecting data and submitting this onto a secure system. Why get involved?
    -Work together on an exciting project with medical students around the world
    - Learn crucial skills in audit and research
    - Gain collaborative authorship on PubMed-indexed publications from the dataset
    - Get experience of presenting data to local and regional audit meetings
    - Chance to a make a real difference to the care of patients undergoing surgery

    If you are interested, please message/email myself at with your name, email address, contact number, the data collection period you are interested in and the hospital where you will be based at the time of data collection . Allocations will be made on a first come first serve basis. Please do let me know if you have any further questions and I will be more than happy to answer them.
