COMPASS STUDY- a study to look at memory


There is some evidence that having surgery may adversely affect a person’s on memory.  To better understand this, our Research Team have developed this study to assess memory post-operatively. Led by Dr Lisa Gibbons working with our Research Fellows Dr Emma Parker and Dr Rachael Meek, they are collaborating with anaesthetists based in both Plymouth and Exeter Hospitals.

This study tests the memory of two groups of people, those having surgery (Surgery Group) and those not having surgery (Comparison Group). We will ask people to go onto an easy to use website to do memory tests.

We are taking part in the “Comparison Group” here at Claremont. We want to know if this new study design is practical, user friendly and a good way to test memory.

Please click on the patient information leaflet for more information (this will be uploaded when the site is live)
