AO VET Outcome Measures Survey 2020

Requesting your input—Use of owner-reported outcome measurements in the clinical routine of veterinary orthopedics

12 February 2020


AO VET invites all veterinary surgeons with a particular interest in companion animal orthopedics to participate in a short online survey to share your experience and thoughts on the use of owner-based questionnaires in the clinical routine of canine orthopedics.

AO VET is dedicated to helping veterinarians make evidence-based decisions for veterinary orthopedic patients. In order to truly embrace the strategies and advantages of evidence-based veterinary medicine, routine collection and assessment of one or more validated questionnaires (owner/carer-reported outcome measurements—OROMs) in daily clinical practice will be one important goal.

Results of this survey will inform the further work of AO VET around the development of easy-to-use and secure data repositories in veterinary orthopedics. The information you provide will be critically important to ensure that the new developments will be designed to meet the needs of your daily clinical routine.

This survey is a collaboration of AO VET, AO CID (AO Institute for Clinical Investigation and Documentation) and the University of Cambridge, UK, and is led by Heidi Radke, European and Royal College Veterinary Specialist in Small Animal Surgery (Orthopedics), Department of Veterinary Medicine, University of Cambridge, UK. Please feel free to contact Heidi ( with any questions.

Participation will take no more than 10-15 minutes to complete. Deadline for responses is Monday, March 9, 2020. Please click the button below to start the survey

Best wishes,
