Overview of Danish Registry Reviews

With the Overview of Danish Registry Reviews, the Danish Society for Pharmacoepidemiology aims to provide a list of reviews that most accurately describes the main Danish registries and their use for pharmacoepidemiological research.

In 2019, Morten Schmidt and colleagues published a review of the Danish Health Care System and the associated medical databases. This review is a good place to get an overview of the Danish registries and reviews published on these registries. You can find the review here https://doi.org/10.2147/Clep.S179083.

However, reviews may become outdated with time for several reasons. Thus, the registries or the methods for which they can be used in research are often improved over time. The application procedures may also change. Finally, validation of the registry data with new information about the quality of the data may also justify updates of existing reviews.

There is therefore a consistent need to stay updated on which reviews that best describe each registry. To facilitate this information to individual researcher and to create a common platform where researchers easily can check if new reviews have been published, the Society have made the overview below.

Comments or suggestions for updates are welcome and can be mailed to info@dsfe.dk.
