Study Summary

The primary aim of the proposed pilot feasibility is to determine whether it is feasible to recruit patients with a hip fracture into a prospective study and randomize them to either indwelling or intermittent catheterization. The study hypothesis is that the investigators would be able to show that this study can be incorporated into clinical practice, with satisfactory rate of patient recruitment and retention. Thus, the investigators would be able to compete this pilot study trial and proceed towards a multi-center trial.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
