Degenerative cervical myelopathy (DCM) is a common condition, which, despite treat-ment, will leave most with disabilities: research progress is urgently needed to improve outcomes.
While there has been significant progress in our understanding of the disease, recently consolidated in international guidelines, there remains substantial ongoing disability.
AO Spine RECODE-DCM [Research Objectives and Common Data Elements for Degenera-tive Cervical Myelopathy] is a multi-stakeholder, co-production initiative, led by the AO Spine Spinal Cord Injury Knowledge Forum, which has included a James Lind Alliance pri-ority setting partnership to establish the top unanswered research questions, ranked ac-cording to priority.
This webinar aims to update participants on both the latest advances in evidence for clini-cal practice and highlight key ongoing uncertainties that should be priority research areas for our community.
