The DEPICT Study findings will be published here as and when they have been peer-reviewed by medical journals or presented at stakeholder dissemination events.
The DEPICT Study protocol was published in 2019 in the BMJ Open Journal prior to data analysis being started.
This paper details the methods by which the study will be conducted so that there is complete transparency of our approach to data collection and analysis.
Workstream A (led by Prof Elizabeth Draper, Leicester) analysed PICANet data from nearly 10,000 critical care transports from across England & Wales from 2014-2016.
The first author, Sarah Seaton, details the impact of the "time to bedside" (time taken by a transport team to reach the patient's bedside from acceptance) on likelihood of the child dying within 30 days of PICU admission.
