Systemic Sclerosis (SSc) specialist wound care services and utilization of Sharp Debridement for Digital Ulcers (DU) treatment

This worldwide survey is part of a PhD research project in Medical Sciences at the University of Almeria (UA), Spain and the Leeds Institute of Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Medicine LIRMM, University of Leeds, UK.

The aim of this survey is three-fold, to capture the number centres providing wound care services for patients with Systemic Sclerosis (SSc) and Digital Ulcers (DUs), to identify clinicians who use Sharp Debridement as local wound care treatment for DUs, and to identify centres which would like to collaborate in a definitive Multicentre Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) assessing the effects of Sharp Debridement in DU healing and complications.

All personal information in this 15-minute survey will be kept confidential.

The survey will close on the 28th of June, 2024.


Thank you for your cooperation with this.

on  behalf  of  the  research  team  at  University of Almeria  and  LIRMM, University of Leeds.
