ISARIC – World Health Organisation (WHO) Clinical Characterisation Protocol for Severe Emerging Infections

Principal Investigator: Dr Elinor (Rhian) Bradley

This study is responding to urgent questions about COVID-19, including the characterisation of clinical features, response to treatment, transmission and clinical outcomes with the aim of supporting policy decisions and improving clinical management of patients.  Results from this study are reported into the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) and findings to date can be found on the ISARIC website

Any service user who has a positive COVID-19 swab recorded on RiO whilst admitted to a KMPT inpatient ward will be automatically entered into this study. We are collecting anonymized data regarding onset and development of symptoms, any treatments received, and outcomes of service users positive for COVID-19 whilst admitted to any of our wards. No contact with the service user is needed for this study, as all data collected is extracted from RiO documentation and anonymized.
