Data Collection Completed For First National Study Using WDDCP

This morning at 08:00 more than 160 medical students completed the data collection phase of the 2015 Sepsis Study. More than 1300 digital forms were collected over 24 hours in 16 acute hospitals throughout Wales. That is a 4x increase in sites and data collected from the 2014 study.

Over the next few months we will work hard to complete a methodology paper to showcase how the WDDCP was essential for completing a study on this scale.

A massive congratulations to all the students that took part this year. Without them, and CUReS, it would not be possible to run a study of this size covering all of Wales in 24 hours. Over the next year we will also be working closely with the CUReS to support student projects wanting to use WDDCP. If you are a medical student in Cardiff looking to utilise the platform, please get in touch with Maja Kopczynska.
