Webinar: Thursday 12 May, 1030–1130
Online, with free registration in advance
In this free webinar NCMD Programme Lead Professor Karen Luyt and NCMD Lead Epidemiologist Dr David Odd will share highlights of what the NCMD programme has discovered about Covid and how it affects children through the last two years.
In particular, they will review the findings of our real-time surveillance of child deaths during the pandemic, which has been crucial in producing fast and robust insights into how the pandemic and its effects have impacted on children. These findings have been published in a series of papers by publishers including the BMJ, Nature Medicine, and Elsevier. They include:
- Child mortality in England during the Covid-19 pandemic [BMJ]
- Child deaths in England after Covid-19 infection during the first pandemic year [Nature]
- Child suicide rates during the Covid-19 pandemic in England [Elsevier]
- Child mortality in England during the first year of the Covid-19 pandemic [BMJ]
- Which children are most vulnerable to serious Covid infection? Risk factors for intensive care admission and death among children hospitalised with Covid [Nature]
The presentation will be followed by a short question and answer session, and you can also submit questions in advance by emailing NCMDfirstname.lastname@example.org.
The session is free and open to all with free registration in advance. We also issue continuing professional development certificates following attendance, upon request – contact Charlotte McClymont at UCL Partners for more details.
Please note that the session will be recorded and shared by NCMD to support future learning.
