Critical Care Research Group (Kadoorie Centre )
- 01865 223103 (fax 01865 223102 )
Under the clinical direction of Dr Duncan Young and Dr Peter Watkinson, the Critical Care Research group undertakes research projects to identify early patient deterioration and long-term clinical outcomes of patients who have been admitted to the Intensive Care Unit.
The Critical Care Research Group undertakes a programme of research which focuses on the identification of early patient deterioration and long-term clinical outcomes of patients who have been admitted to the Intensive Care Unit. The research team has expertise in both quantitative and qualitative research methods, and designs mixed methods projects to enable a breadth of research questions to be addressed.
Current research projects include ICON, the world’s largest study of quality of life and functional outcome in survivors of critical illness; PICRAM, an observational study supported by the Department of Health and Wellcome Trust through the Health Innovation Challenge (HIC) Fund looking to develop personalised alerting thresholds for monitoring hospital inpatients through wireless, wearable devices; CALMS, funded by the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) which aims to improve the management of patients after abdominal surgery; SILENCE, an NIHR funded project looking at the relationship between noise, sleep, and the development of delirium whilst admitted to the intensive care unit; and a local study looking at heart impairment related to critical illness.
The group has a successful history of hosted postgraduate projects, and welcomes enquiries from prospective students.
The team has a long standing collaboration with the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and shares facilities with the NDORMS trauma research team who are also based at the Kadoorie Centre for Critical Care Research & Education. The team also works closely with researchers from the Health Experiences Research Group and Oxford Simulation, Teaching and Research Centre on a number of studies.
