accidental injuries, health, medical care
The project overview
Who knows best how to examine and treat traumatic traffic or sports injuries? The answer is people who deal with these on a daily basis – i.e. physicians, therapists, nurses or orderlies. But the patients themselves have also gained first-hand experience that can be very useful. The aim of this project is to bring this knowledge back to research. A short project overview can be seen here.
How did citizen scientists participate?
It only took 10 minutes to participate and included the following 3 steps:
- Login via https://tell-us.online/
- Provide your research questions and some background information; several research questions are highly welcome.
What happened to the contributions of citizen scientists?
The contributions were anonymised, coded and the best and most innovative research questions will systematically flow back to research. This process will be highly transparent to all participants.
Prizes and how were winners being determined?
By providing the scientists with research questions, optionally citizen scientists had the chance to win one of three individual prices. The team chose the top 3 via lottery.
1st prize: Prof. Dr. med. Dorothea Daentzer
2nd prize: PD Dr. Maximilian Zacherl, M.A.
