What

All of our studies recruit or follow up patients requiring intensive care. We review every intensive care patient every day to see if they are eligible for any studies. We recruit patients pre-operatively and during their hospital stay, sometimes using family or professionals to provide consent where patients are unable to. We then carry out the study procedures which can involve giving research drugs, taking blood tests, completing questionnaires and collecting data.

We often follow up these patients and collect information about them until hospital discharge and then at home for up to 1 year post admission, depending on the study. We are currently recruiting into 7 studies and since the team started in 2009 we have contributed to over 30 studies with more due to start this year.
