Problem The study will address the problem that no studies have established the Emotional Intelligence (EI) skills required by leaders and managers to engage frontline healthcare professionals in crisis situation like Covid19 in Kenya Purpose The purpose of the qualitative exploratory study is to identify the EI skills Leaders and managers need to engage Frontline Healthcare Professionals in Crisis. The Research Question is: What are the EI skills leaders and managers need to engage frontline healthcare professionals (FHP) during crisis situations such as the Covid19 pandemic?
This is a randomized, double-blinded, placebo controlled phase III clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy, safety and immunogenicity of SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine, Inactivated (Vero Cell) in adults aged 18 years and above after 2-dose schedule.
The COVID-19 Prevention Network (CoVPN) is doing a study to estimate the number of people who have or have had the SARS-CoV-2 virus in different communities in the United States. This study is being done to help determine the best places to perform future research studies that will test new drugs for treatment or prevention of COVID-19.
Coronavirus is an acute viral disease with prevailing upper respiratory tract infections caused by the RNA-containing virus of the genus Betacoronavirus of the Coronaviridae family. Most patients with severe COVID-19 develop pneumonia in the first week of the disease. As the infection progresses, the infiltration increases, and the affected areas increases. Excessive and uncontrolled immune system response with rapidly developing fatal cytokine storm plays the main role in the pathogenesis of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) due to SARS-CoV-2 infection. According to available data, exosomes can regulate inflammation and regenerative processes due to the change in the concentration of anti-inflammatory cytokines and switch the immune cell to regenerative secretome. Inhalation of exosomes may reduce inflammation and damage to the lung tissue and stimulate the regenerative processes. This protocol has been developed based on the literature, information about the ongoing tests NCT04276987 (A Pilot Clinical Study on Inhalation of Mesenchymal Stem Cells Exosomes Treating Severe Novel Coronavirus Pneumonia) and NCT04384445 (Organicell Flow for Patients With COVID-19), Patent No 271036826 of 2019. "A method for obtaining and concentrating microRNA-containing exosomal multi-potent mesenchymal-stromal cells for use in cosmetic and pharmaceutical products to stimulate regenerative processes and slow down aging.
This study explores the actual situation of communication during the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic in the South Asia and Middle East region. The purpose is to assess the effect of the limited visitor policy during the COVID-19 pandemic, on the pattern of interaction of critically ill patients to their kin/ guardian and doctor-family members communication. Primary objective of this study are as follows: 1. Explore the changes in communication pattern with limited contact during the COVID-19 pandemic. 2. Assess the methods of informed consent in Intensive care units (ICUs) during the same period
The purpose of this research study is to determine if high-frequency, rapid turn-around SARS-CoV-2 surveillance testing with this assay is feasible and able to be optimized to enable isolation and follow-up diagnostic testing. This test will be performed at various locations in the Madison, Wisconsin area using a mobile laboratory or standard lab space for processing. Saliva samples can be collected and processed at these locations or participants can self-collect at home and drop their samples off at designated locations for same day processing. Up to 10000 participants will be recruited for this study.
Background: COVID-19 is an infection caused by a coronavirus. It can affect different parts of the body. For most people, it causes fevers or trouble breathing. Some people can have symptoms long after they recover. Researchers want to learn if there are signs of changes in the nervous system that may be related to COVID-19. Objective: To test the nervous system (the brain and nerves) in people who have had COVID-19 yet still have certain symptoms even after recovering. Eligibility: People age 18 and older who had COVID-19 and still have neurologic symptoms after they recovered from the initial infection. Design: Participants will be screened with a medical record review. Participants will have a neurological exam. They will complete pen-and-paper tests of their memory and thinking. They will complete a smell test with 'scratch-and-sniff' booklets. They will give blood samples. Participants will have magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain. Soft padding or a coil will be placed around their head. They will lie on a table that slides in and out of the MRI scanner. They will get a contrast dye through an intravenous (IV) catheter. Participants blood pressure, blood flow, skin temperature, sweating, and breathing will be monitored. Participants will have an electrocardiogram to measure heart function. Participants will blow into a mouthpiece for several seconds. Participants will lie on a table that has a motor. The motor tilts the table. Participants will have blood drawn through an IV as the table tilts. Participants will have a lumbar puncture. A small needle will be inserted into the spinal canal to obtain fluid. Participants may repeat some tests 8 weeks to 1 year later.
The Geneva Canton organized the health crisis of the COVID-19 epidemic around the care of COVID patients at the University Hospital (HUG), by moving the care of non-COVID patients to private hospitals of the canton. The COVID epidemic appears to have been associated with a decrease in consultations and care for non-COVID patients. An excess of morbidity and mortality (non-COVID) would be possible during or after the epidemic in connection with this "under-medicalization" of non-COVID patients. The aim of this study is to measure and analyze the impact on the morbidity and mortality of inpatients during and after the COVID-19 epidemic in the adult inpatient wards of HUG and township hospitals / clinics.
Background: Each Belgian winter season is characterized by a wave of influenza like and respiratory symptoms. Especially, the elderly people are more vulnerable to be infected by influenza, but also RSV. The recent COVID-19 pandemic and eventually a next wave, will increase the prevalence of influenza like and respiratory symptoms. Method: A multicentre non-commercial cohort study will be conducted in nursing home staff and residents during the Winter season 2020-2021. Objectives: Primary objective is the difference in incidence of influenza like and respiratory symptoms between cases (cases have evidence of past infection with SARS-CoV-2, referred to as Covid +) and controls (controls have no evidence of previous infection and are referred to as Covid -). The primary outcome analysis as well as the secondary outcome analyses will use two strata: nursing home staff and nursing home residents. The secondary objectives are the difference in incidence of COVID-19, influenza, RSV infections confirmed by PCR between cases and controls, to define a correlate of protection in the covid + group against re-infection with SARS-CoV-2 based on the study of the pre-existing antibody profile (antigen specificity, antibody type and antibody level) at the time of re-exposure. A multiplex assay will be used to assess the antibody profile. Finally, to study the COVID-19 disease severity (7 point WHO ordinal scale, this includes a.o. hospitalisation, mechanical ventilation need and ICU admission, mortality) based on the presence/absence of pre-existing antibodies and the pre-existing antibody profile. For other respiratory infections we will study the need for hospitalization and mortality.
The investigators propose to evaluate intravenous administration of convalescent plasma (CP) obtained from COVID19 survivors in COVID19 patients who are in the medium stage. Supportive data exist for use of convalescent plasma in the treatment of COVID19 and other overwhelming viral illnesses. The study team wants to test the hypothesis that treatment with COVID19 CP will demonstrate salutary effects on COVID19 disease severity/duration, with the primary objective to reduce mortality. In addition, a major secondary objective to reduce the requirement for and/or duration of mechanical ventilation. The first phase is to test the safety of CP therapy.
