Planning a pragmatic clinical trial, for Surgical Trainees

Last month I was invited to facilitate a group at the National Research Collaborative Meeting at the Royal College of Surgeons.
This involved advising a group of 6 surgical trainees (from a range of specialties) who were given 2 hours to identify a clinical uncertainty, then design a trial to address it.
I'm happy to say my group came up with one of the best questions in the room, and came second (of 10 groups).
I hope to see the proposed trial get funding somewhere (maybe from HTA) in the near future.
