The FAME Study

The FAME study is trying to find out the best way to treat a broken ankle in adults under the age of 60.

We would like to invite you to take part in a research study investigating two different types of treatment for your broken ankle. 

We expect that 40 hospitals across the country will be taking part in this study and we hope to recruit 890 patients with a similar injury to yours.

Why do we do clinical trials?

What is randomisation?

What is the role of a consultee?
