In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, patients with or without COVID-19 will continue to present to hospital with surgical pathology in a working environment depleted of resources. These patients need careful consideration regarding admission and potential operative management. Therefore, there is an urgent need for dynamic risk prediction tools which are specific to this particularly trying context.
PanSurg PREDICT will collect, analyse and interpret global in-hospital data regarding:
- The management of patients presenting with surgical pathology in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic,
- Their associated outcomes,
- How this may influence workforce planning during and after the pandemic.
