Affiliate Registries

Signposting health care providers and patients to high quality detailed disease registries is one of the central aims of the EuRRECa project. EuRRECa is achieving this aim by developing a list of affiliate registries.

The benefits of affiliate status include:

  • The EuRRECa information sheets and consent forms can be used for the affiliate registry as well as the EuRRECa Core Registry
  • Data entered in the EuRRECa Core Registry can be shared with the affiliate registry

  • Opportunities to exchange experiences on the activities and sharing methodological tools for improving the registry quality
