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

  • links to frameworks and resources 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

This group was formed in 2010 by Prof Richard Riley, Prof Harry Hemingway, and Prof Doug Altman.

 

PROGRESS brought together a group of healthcare professionals, researchers and journal editors to develop a coherent framework for prognosis research. 

An introductory video can be found here

 

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

 

On this website, we disseminate these and emerging outputs to encourage better prognosis research in practice.
