Call for Member Surveys
Since its inception, CSRS has a history of fostering research & education regarding the diagnosis and treatment of cervical spine injury and disease. The research and educational components of our organization are embodied in many different ways. These currently include our annual CME events, the Annual Meeting and Instructional Course and new this year the Hands-on Surgical Techniques Course in addition to our research grants and research awards.
CSRS leadership has determined that surveys are an effective mechanism for obtaining data on topics that are central to our organization and that provide value to our membership. An increasing number of inquiries to circulate surveys have resulted in the formation of a new committee specifically charged with soliciting and reviewing survey requests.
Survey submissions will take place twice a year and will be reviewed by the Education Committee to determine whether the survey is original, of interest to CSRS Members, has a sound study design and is suitable for collecting information that will effect change in our thought process.
Investigators of all distributed surveys are required to submit an abstract to be considered for presentation at the annual meeting.
