Two EFORT Online Surveys are currently activated:

MDR Impact on your practice

During the last months we were notified that there were issues with the availability of certain medical devices since the MDR (medical device regulation) was put into force in May 2021 (e.g. no availability of low-volume products like snap-fit cups, some tumor implants, plates etc).

In order to have a better overview not only within the EU, but also in the rest of Europe of this (potential) problem for our patients and to discuss this with EU regulators, it is important to collect data.

In line with EFORT’s advocacy work for European healthcare and policies, we are coordinating a survey on the effect of the MDR on both elective orthopaedic and trauma surgical interventions.

The survey takes approx. 10 minutes to complete, and we would be grateful if you would help us by taking this survey.

We thank you for your collaboration.

COVID: Impact on Patients & Orthopaedic surgeons in Training

EFORT endeavours to be your advocate within the arena of European healthcare and policies.

For that reason it is important we have data on the effect of the Covid pandemic on both, elective orthopaedic and trauma surgical interventions. With these data we can alert the EU and also the non-EU institutions related to the impact of Covid on musculoskeletal care and so to our patients.
Therefore we invite to take this survey which will not take more than 5 minutes to complete, helping us with an impact analysis on orthopaedic and trauma care.
Thank you for your participation in this important matter!
