TIGER Case Study

TIGER (Task shifting Inguinal hernia Repair between surgeons and technicians): development of a randomised trial in low and middle income countries

Can technicians perform mesh inguinal hernia repair safely and cost-effectively in rural surgical settings in low and middle income countries?

This pilot trial aims to investigate delivery of a standardised, measurable training programme for technicians to perform a mesh inguinal hernia repair.

More information about our work in rural Ghana will be published soon. Until then, please have a look at the poster we presented at our annual GSU prioritisation workshop in Accra, Ghana, in November 2019.
