SeaSHeL Study Update

September 2020


Dear All

We hope you are keeping well.

As a collaborative, we have now recruited 205 patients and have 68 registered sites! We would like to thank everyone for their continued hard work in supporting the SeaSHeL study. 

Please find below a breakdown of the number of patients recruited per hospital. The top 4 recruiting sites are:

  1. Royal National ENT Hospital led by Praneta Kulloo – 28 patients
  2. Colchester Hospital led by Omar Burgan, Royal Bolton Hospital led by Jonathan Abbas and Queen’s Hospital Burton led by Joshua Whittaker – 11 patients each

We are really pleased to say that the SeaSHeL protocol is now in print for publication in BMJ Open. During the peer review process, some excellent minor amendments were suggested which have been incorporated into the protocol.

  • For the purposes of data collection, there has been one minor change. Specifically, in REDCap, under the “Patient’s First Presentation To ENT” page you will be asked whether the patient had a pre-morbid audiogram. If they have, please enter this data. This is only for future patient entries uploaded to REDCap.

Please view the study website at http://www.seashel.co.uk/, Where you will find important study details, study updates, a counter of the number of patients recruited and sites registered, and access to important documents related to the study. We are in the process of updating patient numbers on the website.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for any support by replying to this email or on 07706608816.

Best wishes,

SeaSHeL Academic Team
