© 2019 Elsevier Inc.Trainee research collaborative networks have revolutionized how trainees participate in clinical research. Three North East of England trainee-led research groups, the Intensive Care and Anesthesia Research Network of North East Trainees (INCARNNET), the Northern Surgical Trainees Research Association (NOSTRA) in General Surgery and the Collaborative Orthopedic Research Network (CORNET) in Trauma and Orthopedics have joined, creating a multispecialty collaborative. This multispecialty collaborative undertook a two-phase research Delphi, between November 2017 and June 2018, to identify key research questions. This Delphi identified three high priority research questions common to the three specialties: what is the impact of diabetes control on perioperative outcomes, what factors affect theater efficiency, and how to prevent postoperative chest infection following emergency surgery? These research questions will be developed into collaborative projects. The Delphi also identified specialty-specific questions to be taken forward as research projects by each network.
