Title: The Impact of Psychosocial Factors on the Outcome of Surgical Repair for Rotator Cuff Tears – A Prospective Cohort (IMPROVE Study)

Supervisor: Aaron Nauth

Rotator cuff tears are a common cause of pain and reduced function in the shoulder. The impact of psychosocial factors on patients outcomes following rotator cuff repair surgery is unclear. A multi-centre, prospective, cohort study was performed where patients with a full-thickness rotator cuff tear were enrolled prior to rotator cuff repair surgery. Patients completed multiple validated questionnaires to measure psychosocial functioning (symptoms of depression, anxiety, pain catastrophizing, treatment expectations and social support) at the pre-operative visit. Patients were followed for one year after their surgery.
