Have you or a loved undergone pancreatic surgery or are you a surgeon with experience conducting pancreatic surgery? Your input is needed on a review considering tissue adhesives for the prevention of postoperative pancreatic fistula after pancreatic surgery?

Skills / interests: Consumer (public, patient, carer) input

Would you be interested in helping us with this article focused the use of tissue adhesives for preventing postoperative pancreatic fistula (a type of serious surgical complication) in people undergoing pancreatic surgery?

I am looking for a consumer who would be willing to peer review this Cochrane systematic review “Fibrin sealants for the prevention of postoperative pancreatic fistula following pancreatic surgery”.

Cochrane considers a consumer to be a person with experience of the condition/procedure (in this case, pancreatic surgery), in this case either as a practitioner or patient or carer/family member of a patient. From a consumer perspective, we are interested if the language of the review, especially the language used in the Plain Language Summary, is accessible and if it feels relevant for those undergoing pancreatic surgery, such that it will be helpful to patients and carers with healthcare decision making.

While you are welcome to provide feedback on any aspect of the review, you can focus your attention on the summary sections. Our aim is for this to be a manageable task, that does not overburden consumer reviewers.

Thank you in advance for considering!

Ideal applicant

Anyone with experience of pancreatic surgery, either as a patient/carer or a practitioner
