I was contacted by Dr. Mark Rippon, Visiting Clinical Research Fellow at the University of Huddersfield:
“…specializing in wound care. I have recently undergone aortic valve replacement and was surprised at some aspects of the wound care related to pain and psychological stress. As part of a small research project with the University of Huddersfield I have decided to investigate this further with a small questionnaire aimed at patients that have recently undergone major surgery through an online survey form. I was wondering if you could help me drive patients to the questionnaire by allowing the link to the survey on your website. The project is non-profit making and not commercially funded, but should help with a greater understanding of the needs of post-surgical patients with regards to their wound care treatment.
So there ya go. If you have had any sort of major surgery, especially cardiac, please take the time to complete this survey. It can help us understand how to address surgical wound care issues.
Take the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/6V6P3XQ
