Operative Versus Non-operative Treatment for Atraumatic Rotator Cuff Tears: A Multicenter Randomized Controlled Pragmatic Trial

Grants and Contracts Details


Scope of Work: Recruitment of Patients for the Clinical Trial: Under the leadership of the site-PI, the site will recruit patients for the Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff (ARC) trial. The study personnel will follow procedures laid out in the study protocol/manual of operations and procedures (MOOP) documents and communicate with Dr. Jain’s team at Vanderbilt for any issues. The site is expected to contribute 6-10 randomized patients per month towards recruitment. They will maintain the initial recruitment documentation (informed consent, patient information) and hand this to Vanderbilt staff once recruitment procedures are completed. The site will also call enrolled follow-up patients with whom Vanderbilt’s Coordinating Center experience difficulty contacting or who do not respond. The research assistant will also provide information from medical records as needed by the coordinating center at Vanderbilt. Site PI and study staff will also participate in any study design meetings, monthly study progress calls, and yearly key study personnel meetings as per the PI’s request. Site-PI will be responsible for maintaining institutional review board approvals and other mandatory clinical trials trainings for their site with the assistance of the research assistant.
