The ADVANCE Study – would you like to take part?



The ADVANCE Study is seeking volunteers who served in Afghanistan from 2002-2014 and were case-evaced to a UK hospital.

What is the ADVANCE Study?

ADVANCE is the ArmeD SerVices TrAuma RehabilitatioN OutComE Study. A collaboration between the DMRC, Imperial College London and King’s College London, it is investigating the long-term physical and psycho-social outcomes of battlefield casualties from the UK Armed Forces following deployment to Afghanistan between 2002 and 2014. You can find out more information on their website.

What does taking part involve?

Full information on what taking part in the ADVANCE Study would entail can be found here, but in brief it would involve you taking part in multiple and thorough health checks over the 20 years of the study. By being involved you will contribute towards world class research that will improve future combat casualty care.

If you take part, the study will cover your travel expenses, offer accommodation and give you £100 as a thank you for the initial review and £200 for each follow-up visit.
