The GlobalSurg, CovidSurg Week is an international multi-centre cohort study that aims:
(1) To determine the optimal timing of surgery following SARS-CoV-2 infection
(2) Determine and assess key global surgical indicators, such as postoperative mortality.
If you would like to participate in an international collaborative research project, please register your interest at https://globalsurg.org/surgweek/. This would especially be suitable if you have done a surgical placement before or during October, as you would require a clinician’s support for audit approval and access to data. Collaborators from each site who contribute patients will be recognised on any resulting publications as PubMed-citable co-authors. A corporate authorship model will be used, please see the PubMed entry for the previous CovidSurg paper in the Lancet here: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32479829/ (click “expand” under ‘COVIDSurg Collaborative’ to see a full list of PubMed-citable co-authors).

These would be held on Zoom/Skype and would be supported by a resource pack produced by our project team containing guidance and possible talking points. Interested students, please email: email@example.com
