Validation is research
The position paper was written after we received several complaints from researchers, who have had difficulties getting permission to conduct this type of studies.
In DSFE we believe, that validation studies help to obtain new knowledge, and are a key elements of research in prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of Danish patients. Validation studies are therefore covered by the concept of research and to argument against this contravene broad international consensus.
Validering er forskning (in Danish)
