Pan-Nordic RA Register network

Objectives of the Project

The Nordic premises for register-based collaborative clinical research in the field of chronic inflammatory diseases are particularly promising. With largely similar health care structure, the existence of national registers on medical (cancer, hospitalisations, pregnancies, et cetera) and societal (sick-leave, other cost reimbursements, et cetera) outcomes, the Nordic premises for register-based collaborative clinical research in the field of chronic inflammatory diseases are particularly promising.

Patient Voice

We will establish a Patient Advisory Panel (1-2 members per country) with adequate representation. The Panel will actively participate at the biannual meetings and provide input on the design and performance of each sub-project.

The panel will also serve as liaison between the project and the national patient organizations on general issues such as data protection and perceptions of personal/data integrity, and, depending on focus, to suggest additional patient research partners for the specific projects.
