    episode 22: how to win friends and influence p-values

    Welcome to the latest episode of the see one / do one podcast. In this episode we talk all about research.

    Hold on - we know this could be a somewhat dry topic, but not when done in our unique orthohub way!

    Our guests are Matt Costa and Dan Perry, two TITANS of orthopaedic academia who get their message across very well, and are great value too!

    Matt is a Professor of Orthopaedic Trauma at the University of Oxford and has been a leading light in the rise of the pragmatic trial - research done in the real world that directly impacts our daily work and how we actually treat patients.

    Dan is an NIHR Professor of Children's Surgery and Emergency Care and leads global randomised clinical trials in paediatric orthopaedic surgery and paediatric acute care. He is also a current ABC Fellow. Dan's research focuses on epidemiology and effectiveness research. He has an interest in 'big data' and clinical trials of orthopaedic interventions.

    In this wide-ranging and fun conversation we cover many different topics including:
    their very different journeys into research and the world of academiathe problem with pragmatic trials, and why they have upset some of the orthopaedic communitythe ying and yang between academics in their "ivory towers" vs everyone else in the "real world"the challenges with multi-centre / international collaborationsdoes being good at academia impact how good you are at operatinghow juniors undertaking research can avoid being taken for a ridehow do we stop poor quality researchare journals a scamthe future of research and impactand much more!Please subscribe on your podcast player and please leave us a rating and a review!

    orthohub stories: Swee Ang Chai - orthopaedic surgeon, aid worker, activist & author

    orthohub stories: Swee Ang Chai - orthopaedic surgeon, aid worker, activist & author

    The next in our series of ‘orthohub stories’, this time we’re with Swee Chai Ang: Orthopaedic surgeon, Aid worker, Activist and Author. She sits in the Singapore Women’s Hall of Fame to boot!

    Swee talks about her parents and how their strength and harrowing experiences in captivity, forged the iron within her. She talks about how to make a difference to others and what it is to help people who are in need.

    We discuss how it was to become a female orthopaedic surgeon, back in a time when they could be counted on one hand.

    She describes the unique love story with her husband Francis, a relationship that was punctuated by periods of time in prison, undergoing interrogation and fleeing Singapore to the UK as refugees. 

    We hear about her journey to Beirut, why she went and some of the horrors of war that she encountered.

    The story is humbling and, in places, very sad yet absolutely compelling to hear. She speaks very candidly about how different faiths can work together to find common ground.

    We end on a hopeful note, discussing what it might take to find peace in a region where memories of conflict and hostility are culturally engrained.
