Development of the platform has been possible due to the following partners:
National Student Association of Medical Research (NSAMR)
NSAMR is WDDCP’s partner organisation. It is a non-profit, non-governmental and non-partisan student-led organisation representing an association of medical research societies nationally.
Cardiff University Research Society (CUReS)
CUReS has been essential to data collection for WDDCP powered project through recruiting medical students for data collection. The platform will continue to support Cardiff University medical students projects and CUReS short duration projects.
Surgical Materials Testing Laboratory (SMTL)
The support of SMTL has helped us further develop WDDCP past the use of only bespoke devices where data collectors are now able to use their personal devices.
Partnering with SAIL (Secure Anonymised Information Linkage) has allowed us to link up our collected research data to provide deeper insights into longer-term outcomes.
Welsh Intensive Care Society (WICS)
WICS has been one of our most important financial partners in the platform setup and their support was crucial in running our first proof-of-concept projects.
Fiona Elizabeth Agnew Trust (FEAT)
FEAT’s objective is to stop sepsis through funding research into the early detection of the condition and they supported our work with their Features Award 2016.
Initial funding for platform development has graciously been provided by:
FEAT (Fiona Elizabeth Agnew Trust), UK Sepsis Trust, Welsh Intensive Care Society (WICS), Cardiff University Research Society (CUReS), Cwm Taf University Health Board (CTUHB), National Institute for Social Care and Health Research (NISCHR) and Cardiff University Department of Anaesthetics, Intensive Care and Pain Medicine.
Our platform is made available completely free and is run by volunteers – if you would like to support us in any way, please get in touch.
