The overarching goal of the BADER Consortium is to advance and strengthen evidence-based orthopaedic rehabilitation care that results in optimal functional outcomes for each wounded warrior. Key Accomplishments to date The BADER consortium publication count reached 158 published abstractspresentations and 42 published manuscripts. We continue to engage with and monitor three BADER funded protocols. Grant applications related to BADER funding were submitted and awarded. To date, the submissions have resulted in17 awards, 14 of which total 15.5 million in external funding. The Consortium has nearly eight million dollars in research proposals among various agencies pending review and awarding. An application was submitted to the Joint Warfighter Medical Research Program Funding Opportunity Number W81XWH-18-JWMRP. If awarded, the Consortium will secure up to 6,000,000 to continue activities. Integral to the above mentioned JWMRP application is a renewed, highly interactive and productive partnership with the Extremity Trauma and Amputation Center of Excellence EACE in particular, its Research and Surveillance Division RSD. One immediate partnership activity is the adoption of the RSD steering committee as a new structure for the BADER Consortium and consisting of a central leadership team comprising EACERSD lead scientists and BADER leaders with appropriate Administrative Core support. An award from JWRMP will propel this committee into the role of oversight and policy hub for joint EACERSD and BADER continuation activities.
