Pre-conference: Unravelling Data for Rapid Evidence-Based Response to COVID-19 (unCoVer)
Wednesday 9 November, 9:00 – 17:00 CET
unCoVer network (https://uncover-eu.net/partners/)
unCoVer (‘Unravelling Data for Rapid Evidence-Based Response to COVID-19’) is a functional network of 29 partners capable of harvesting real-world data derived from the response and provision of care to COVID-19 patients by health systems across Europe and internationally.
These real-world data comprise mostly information from electronic medical records from front-line hospitals, and national surveillance data, registries, and integrate information from over 300,000 COVID-19 patients initially, and anticipated to increase as databases are being updated on a continuous basis. Studies into patient’s characteristics, determinants of diseases prognosis, and safety and effectiveness of treatments and potential strategies against COVID-19 in real-world settings are envisioned to complement findings from efficacy/safety clinical trials where vulnerable populations, those most at risk of severe COVID-19, are often excluded.
unCoVer’s ultimate goal is to bring together European and international expertise to monitor, identify, and facilitate the access and utilization of this type of data, identify knowledge gaps, and underrepresented populations, and proactively seek synergies with complementary existing and planned clinical databases.
The detailed programme is availabe here.
The pre-conference is financially supported and the registration fee is only EUR 20. Networking lunch and refreshments are included. Number of registrations is limited.
