Project
Completed

Translational Medicine and Patient Safety in Europe

Duration: March - Sept 2010

Rationale
Throughout Europe, data is collected in primary care that can in principle be used for epidemiological research and clinical trials.

Aim
Research questions are:
To what extent and in what way can these data become available for this research?
Which requirements must then be met?

Project design
Nivel is involved in two sub-projects:
1. Legal and ethical framework.
2. Data quality

Results
The first sub-project deliveres a framework on the basis of which issues regarding privacy protection can be described.
The second sub-project builds on the Dutch EHR scan and provides an instrument with which the usability of data from electronic patient records can be assessed.
Funding
EU 7th framework programme
