The Pelvic Floor Clinical Study Group

14th May 2015

The Pelvic Floor Clinical Study Group is an informal multi-disciplinary group of clinicians and academics and the Group has three main roles: to identify research priorities across the whole spectrum of pelvic floor disorders, and pass these to national funding bodies such as NIHR; to provide an early peer-review for investigators planning research applications in order to enhance the quality and likelihood of successful funding, and to develop research projects on a collaborative basis to address the identified research priorities. The CSG can also provide applicant expertise in specific areas, and make contact on investigators’ behalf with patient groups or specific skill sets.

An application proforma for peer review is available on the website, and anyone who is interested in contributing to the Group by offering peer review, or becoming a member, or suggesting research priorities should contact the CSG Chair, Professor Douglas Tincello. https://www.rcog.org.uk/en/careers-training/academic-og/clinical-study-groups/pelvic-floor-csg/
