Abstract

AimsThe aim of this study was to develop a psychometrically sound measure of recovery foruse in patients who have suffered an open tibial fracture.MethodsAn initial pool of 109 items was generated from previous qualitative data relating torecovery following an open tibial fracture. These items were...
