Development and validation of a risk model for identification of non-neutropenic, critically-ill, adult patients at high risk of invasive candida infection
Project title: Development and validation of a risk model for identification of non-neutropenic, critically-ill, adult patients at high risk of invasive candida infection
Research type: Primary Research
Contractor: Intensive Care National Audit & Research Centre
Started: November 2008 | Status: Published February 2013
Study found that there was a low incidence of invasive fungal disease (IFD) among non-neutropenic critically ill adult patients. Risk modelling produced simple risk models that provided acceptable discrimination for identifying patients at 'high risk' of invasive Candida infection. The economic model suggested that a strategy of no risk assessment and no antifungal prophylaxis was most cost-effective.
