Welcome to prognosisresearch.com
aiming to improve prognosis research in healthcare
This website serves as a companion to “Prognosis Research in Healthcare: Concepts, Methods and Impact” published by Oxford University Press.
Released in September 2020, the website aims to provide:
entry-level information for those interested in prognosis research methods and good practice
a framework to help you plan, carry out and evaluate prognosis research in healthcare
guidance on prognosis research methods, including links to key papers and presentations
videos of recent talks from experts in the field, covering emerging topics, methods and controversies
Our drive to improve prognosis research stems from the PROGRESS (PROGnosis RESearch Strategy) partnership.
PROGRESS brought together a group of healthcare professionals, researchers and journal editors to develop a coherent framework for prognosis research.
Key outputs of PROGRESS include:
the PROGRESS framework for prognosis research, published in four linked papers in 2013 in the BMJ and PLOS Medicine covering: overall prognosis (PDF); prognostic factors (PDF); prognostic models (PDF); and predictors of treatment effect (PDF).
published recommendations for improving transparency in prognosis research (PDF)
our training course: Statistical Methods for Risk Prediction and Prognostic Models, which runs twice per year at Keele University, UK.
our textbook: Prognosis Research in Healthcare: concepts, methods and impact, with Oxford University Press
On this website, we disseminate these and emerging outputs to encourage better prognosis research in practice.
