Musculoskeletal Statistics Unit

MSU influences how health-care decisions are made through research. MSU promotes the principles and practice of evidence-based medicine through knowledge-translation research and educational offerings. MSU is a clinical research unit conducting clinical research within primarily musculoskeletal conditions. We provide expertise and infrastructure in planning, conduct, analysis, and interpretation of randomised trials and cohort studies. MSU conceives, designs, organizes and implements clinical trials, and evidence synthesis projects – incl. systematic reviews and meta-analyses published within and outside The Cochrane Collaboration. The research ethics and standards build on the principles endorsed by the Cochrane Collaboration, the GRADE Working Group, and the OMERACT initiative. The major goal for MSU is to stimulate, promote, and support the diagnosis (incl. prognosis), treatment (incl. prevention), and improve relevant health outcomes (incl. psychometrics) of musculoskeletal conditions.

MSU work together to help healthcare providers, policy-makers, patients, their advocates and carers, make well-informed decisions about health care. We collaborate across biomedical specialties, with an interdisciplinary approach to clinical epidemiology, and biostatistics.

The Musculoskeletal Statistics Unit consists of 1 senior researcher, 1 PhD student, 2 Research fellows and 1 medical student
