Update to the COVID-19 II Custom Data Collection

The COVID-19 II Custom Data Collection has been updated with input from clinicians.

The All admissions section of the data collection form will collect the following data items for all PICU admissions meeting the criteria for inclusion in the COVID-19 II Custom Data Collection:

  • Number of doses of COVID-19 vaccine received
  • Date of most recent COVID-19 vaccine
  • Type of most recent COVID-19 vaccine

These fields were previously only collected in the Potential COVID 19 vaccine related complications section/ cohort and have now been removed to avoid duplication.

Other updates:

  • PIMS-TS section: We’ve amended “COVID-19 PCR test result” question title to “COVID-19 PCR test result during this admission”.
  • COVID-19 confirmed by PCR section: We’ve amended the option title “No symptoms – asymptomatic throughout PICU stay” to “No symptoms attributed to COVID-19 throughout PICU stay / asymptomatic”.

In order to release this there will be some PICANet web downtime from 17:00 on Friday 11th February 2022. If you use PICANet web, a notification will appear on PICANet web to not enter data when the system is at risk. The updated data collection will be available from Saturday 12th February 2022.

Version 2.0 of the data collection form and dataset definitions manual to support completion of the data will be made available on the COVID-19 page.
