ISARIC Research Prioritisation: Stakeholder Consultation

Closing date - August 16, 2024

With the input of ISARIC’s Members, Partners and other key stakeholders, our research prioritisation activities are intended to guide some of ISARIC’s core programmes of work, ensuring that the most urgent, relevant research questions gain the critical research investments they require. We will take a multi-pronged approach to generating and reviewing ISARIC’s research priorities to ensure our agenda is agile and responsive to the changing landscape of epidemic-prone infectious diseases.   Learn more

Clinical Characterisation Protocol

The Clinical Characterisation Protocol (CCP) is designed for any severe or potentially severe acute infection of public health interest.

It is a standardised protocol that enables data and biological samples to be collected rapidly in a globally-harmonised manner. The Clinical Characterisation Protocol (CCP) can be used for the rapid, coordinated clinical investigation of confirmed cases of COVID-19.

Core Outcome Sets

A core outcome set provides a minimal list of outcome measures to be reported in all clinical trials in a specific disease area. The core outcome set does not preclude trialists from selecting primary, secondary, or safety outcome measures that are not in the core set. ISARIC’S COS project will contribute to improved research quality, data comparability, and evidence synthesis, ultimately facilitating the development of effective interventions and evidence-based clinical practice.

Data

We host one of the largest collections of international clinical data related to COVID-19. Our database includes detailed individual patient data from over 900,000 hospitalised individuals in more than 1,200 institutions across 60 countries. To learn more about accessing these data, existing analyses, and details about our global data partners, please visit our data section.

Community Engagement

The nature of ISARIC’s work means that patients and the wider community are at the core of what we do. It is therefore critical that we involve the views and opinions of those individuals in how we prioritise, design, and conduct our work. Community engagement can also greatly improve the relevance and impact of research – by increasing uptake of research initiatives by the community of potential participants and by addressing the needs of end-users of the research, to name a few benefits. Community engagement also gives back to the community through increasing the public’s understanding of the research process and of specific conditions.

Stigma

Stigma happens when a person or group is denied full social acceptance because of association with something (such as an illness) that is considered bad or shameful by others in their society. ISARIC researchers have worked on several studies, and have developed various tools and surveys to support stigma-related research.
