RECoVER- Rapid European 2019-nCoV Emergency Research response
Project lead: Professor Chris Butler
Research group: Infection & Acute Care
Funding: EU H2020
- A point prevalence audit survey where clinicians in contrasting European countries register consultations for acute Respiratory infection, and report on testing and management. The goal is to benchmark care, and to identify good practice and share it.
- A prospective study in which primary care clinicians register clinical features of patients with suspected Covid-19, their testing, and management strategy, together with patient follow-up of patient outcomes.
- We are feeding into the development of a Europe-wide platform trial that may evaluate point of care diagnostics for Covid-19.
- We are contributing to social science work exploring the perceptions of healthcare workers, patients and home carers about their experiences with COVID-19, and how this might enhance risk communication.
