Survey aims and outcomes

We are interested in identifying priority research topics in order to inform the scope and content of Cochrane Reviews on preventing sport and exercise-related injuries. A Cochrane Review is a systematic review of research in health care and health policy that is published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews. Ultimately, the Cochrane Bone, Joint and Muscle Trauma Group will undertake these reviews to provide reliable summaries of he best available evidence for these identified topics. A link to the Cochrane Bone, Joint and Muscle Trauma Group website can be found here:

We are particularly interested in upper and lower limb injuries, but you are free to mention any injury relevant to participation in sports and recreational activities. Please note that we are asking you questions that are relevant to what you normally do. If your habits have been disrupted by the Covid-19 virus, we are interested in your views and habits prior to this time. 

We would appreciate if you could complete this questionnaire as fully and truthfully as possible. Your responses will aid in the identification and prioritisation of research themes and questions pertaining to upper and lower limb injuries incurred during physical activities. This survey will close at noon on the 31st July 2020.

We assure you that completion of the questionnaire is voluntary and all responses are anonymous. You will not be asked for your name or contact details at any point. By completing and submitting the questionnaire, you agree that any information you provide can be used by Teesside University for research purposes only. No information will be used that could lead to you being identified personally. If you have any queries regarding the questionnaire or its outcomes, please feel free to contact Prof. Greg Atkinson (Principal Investigator) at, or Gregory MacMillan (Project Research Assistant) at
