Endocrinology Survey for All Trainees

Dear Colleague 

My name is Dr Rebecca Moon and I am a GRID trainee in paediatric endocrinology & diabetes.  I would like to invite you to participate in a short survey about pubertal staging examinations.  You have been invited because you are either a consultant paediatrician, specialty trainee in paediatrics or paediatric endocrinology nurse specialist (PENS).

This survey aims to establish the training received and confidence of paediatricians and PENS in undertaking pubertal staging examinations, and typical practice when performing these examinations.  This is not a test and there are no right or wrong answers to any of the questions. Please answer honestly based on your own personal practice.  Your participation is optional, and your answers will be completely anonymous.  The study has been approved by the University of Southampton Faculty of Medicine Ethics Committee (Ergo #72383).

We hope that the answers to this survey will provide information on the training needs of paediatricians and PENS in pubertal staging examinations.

The survey will take around 5-10 minutes to complete.  Please click this link to go to the survey: https://forms.office.com/r/kpFeywUSKw

If you have any questions, please contact me via email: rm@mrc.soton.ac.uk

Thank you in advance for your participation.

With best wishes,

Dr Rebecca Moon, NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow in Child Health, University of Southampton & Grid Trainee in Paediatric Endocrinology & Diabetes, University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust
