AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Are the risk factors of friction/shear forces being adequately addressed in people with Diabetes, to protect skin integrity?

Diabetes places people at risk for problems with skin integrity, and complications that can risk the patient's limbs and life. Friction and shear forces are known extrinsic factors in pressure injuries and diabetic foot wounds, but this is not consistently addressed as part of the treatment plan. This can contribute to complications, and a higher cost of care. Better understanding of this gap in treatment may allow increased access to known therapeutic interventions that reduce these factors.

The remaining questions allow you to outline in more detail the information needed to address your research question. The series of questions allow up to five entries. If you have more than five entries, please try to prioritize them and enter the remainder in the final field. When done, click Submit at the bottom. No

Select your required Data Item #1, which is most important to your study. This would be an item that needs to be generated and collected from different sources using various procedures, tools, techniques, assays, etc. If not in the current selection, please enter it in the textbox below. History, medication

By what method will Data Item #1 be obtained? This may Include procedures, tools, techniques, assays, and analytical approaches for the collection, measurement, or analysis of data. If you do not find the required method, you may enter it in the textbox below. Electronic Health Records (EHR)

Are there specifications that apply to the method by which Data Item #1 will be obtained, e.g., is the measurement taken once a year, every month, or some other variation? If you do not find your specification in the dropdown, you may enter it in the textbox below. Once per year

If Data Item #2 was not in the dropdown, please enter it here. Interventions (wound treatments, orthotics, off-loading/pressure relief)

Method #2 Electronic Health Records (EHR)

Specification #2 At specified times anchored to the clinical event

If Data Item #3 was not in the dropdown, please enter it here If friction/shear reduction was not addressed, why not?

Method #3 Survey

Specification #3 At specified times anchored to the clinical event
