Project Snapshot – Asthma Retrospective Study

Ready to go!:

Ethics approval has been granted and the RedCAP database has been constructed and tested.  You should all have received email instructions on how to get going.

The main steps are:

  • Compile a list of who will be doing the data entry
  • Send the list to Simon Craig who will give access to the training environment.
  • Extract a list of medical records, and follow the emailed instructions to set up REDCap
  • Once you are happy with the data entry process, get access to the real database and make a start!

Please let Simon know if there are any queries.

COMING SOON – International (PREDICT-led) Asthma Projects:

An international working group, with representatives from all PERN research networks has been formed to look at outcome measures in clinical trials of acute severe paediatric asthma. A number of projects are being planned, and will be circulated through PREDICT as they develop.

The first series of projects will include

  • collation of clinical practice guidelines (lead – Simon Craig)
  • interviews with clinicians (lead – Charmaine Gray)
  • interviews with patients (lead – Simon Craig)

Please contact Simon ( with any queries.
