Michigan Orthopaedic Trauma Research (MOTR) Collaborative

Purpose: the collaborative investigation of orthopaedic trauma and fractures for the optimal prevention, diagnosis and treatment of our collective patients; the dissemination of skeletal trauma knowledge for the common good

  • Principle Investigator (PI) will be last (to maintain professional impact)
  • Lead Investigators (LIs) will be first (to maintain professional impact)
  • Writing group (individual names listed to maintain professional impact) will be determined by PI and LIs
  • MOTR Investigators will be co-author and noted as author-member for CV purposes, eg “MOTR Investigators (Ahn J, member)”, and as author-collaborators for PubMed / Publication Indexing purposes.
  • Authorship will follow International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) guidelines requiring participation and attestation by each author:

    2. Drafting or critical/intellectual revision and
    3. Approval of final version and
    4. Accountable for the entire work
  • Blood loss with hip fracture nailing
