First National Study To Use WDDCP Proposed – RRAILS

During the Rapid Response to Acute Illness (RRAILS) meeting in Cardiff today, a proposal to replicate the 2014 sepsis study by the Size of Sepsis in Wales Study Group on a national scale was announced.

The proposed study will take place in June 2015 and include 18 hospitals across Wales over 24 hours. The data collection will once again be completed by medical students from Cardiff University, working in collaboration with the Cardiff University Research Society (CUReS).

The study will also be the first to utilise the WDDCP using Android devices running ODK Collect. For more information and presentation slides, please see this link.
