The central DePPaRT coordinating team met last week to discuss the incredible progress we've made this year, and to make new plans for 2016. We are so grateful to all of our site coordinators, investigators, and of course the families and friends of the patients enrolled who have made this study possible. As of this morning, a total of 70 patients have now been enrolled in the study, making this the largest prospective cohort of continuously physiologically monitored patients after withdrawal of life sustaining therapy ever! (At least, to our knowledge). Our group is looking forward to continued collaboration with all our site teams and possibly some new projects on the way for next year...
On behalf of the DDePICt group (Sonny, Sam, Laura, Amanda, and Nathan), wishing you and your families a safe and happy holidays!
