    Using SurveyCTO to Determine COVID-19 Health Outcomes: Discover Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah Hospital’s Approach

    Early responses to the COVID-19 pandemic have focused on describing the clinical course of the disease and treating the sick. As the pandemic evolves, the availability of robust epidemiological and clinical data is critical to inform future decision-making and allocate health resources appropriately.

    In this upcoming webinar, SurveyCTO will turn things over to Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah Hospital, which has the unique position of treating everyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in Kuwait. They’ll share valuable lessons from their efforts to determine infection risk factors and outcomes, which include using SurveyCTO to conduct a retrospective study of patient data from electronic medical records and a series of follow-up phone surveys on discharged patients. Join us to learn how to design and conduct studies and phone surveys on COVID-19 health outcomes.

    A member of our expert support team will moderate a 20-minute presentation given by leadership from Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah Hospital and then open the discussion to any of your questions. If you miss the live webinar, you can watch the recording that we’ll post in our video library.

    What you’ll learn

    The efforts of Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah Hospital represent one of the first large retrospective cohort studies to summarize demographic characteristics, clinical characteristics, and outcomes of consecutive COVID-19 patients in a single country. Based on their experience, you’ll learn broader approaches and best practices related to the following:

    • Collecting epidemiological and clinical data related to the incidence of COVID-19.
    • Deploying phone surveys to capture COVID-19-related data, such as the recurrence of symptoms, transmission, and self-isolation precautions.
    • Protecting the safety of team members and training them on new digital methods of data collection.

    Read this research paper published in The Lancet to learn more about the study. To learn more about conducting phone surveys, or computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI), explore the CATI starter kit, which offers an automated and scalable approach to using SurveyCTO as a CATI solution.

    Time: 9:00 AM EDT / 1:00 PM UTC
