Prognosis research projects


“To generate high quality evidence regarding the likely future course of a disease or health condition, with the aim to support patients’ and clinicians’ decision-making, improve patient outcomes, and increase efficiency of health care".

Researchers are members and co-founders of the PROGnosis RESearch Strategy (PROGRESS) group.
