NIHR Urgent Public Health Research Studies for COVID-19
Full list of studies available here

The Association of British Neurologists aim to track suspected neurological complications of COVID-19 infection.

NeuroCritical Care Society COVID 19 OUTCOMES:

This study is a prospective cohort observational study to determine the impact of the COVID 19 crisis on resource allocation and outcomes of ICU patients with an acute neurological injury who require routine care and are not necessarily COVID 19 positive. The study will evaluate mortality and functional outcomes at hospital discharge and 90 days among critically ill, neurologically impaired patients admitted during the COVID 19 crisis period. Participating sites have the option to also compare those outcomes to a historical control group who were treated prior to the COVID 19 crisis.

NeuroCritical Care Society COVID 19 MANIFESTATIONS:

This study is a prospective observational cohort study to document the prevalence and severity of neurological symptoms among patients with the confirmed or suspected novel coronavirus (COVID 19). This study contains common data elements that all sites are requested to obtain (Tier 1 data), as well as supplemental data elements that are optional for sites to obtain retrospectively based on time and resources. This study will also offer optional addendums to investigate Tier 2 and Tier 3 strategies, such as more invasive blood and tissue sampling, based on local resources.

IctalGroup Neuro-COVID-19 Acute Encephalopathy in Critically Ill Patients With SARS-Cov-2 Infection:

We propose a prospective observational multicentre study which aims at reporting the prevalence of acute encephalopathy in critically ill patients with SAR-Cov-2 infection, to report related outcomes and to identify prognostic factors.
