On Tuesday, September 27th, 2011, a working meeting on medical quality registers of cardio-vascular illness was held at Radisson Blu Hotel in Værnes.
The meeting was a cooperative event between UNIKARD, the Cardio-Vascular Register (Norwegian Institute of Public Health, http://www.fhi.no) and SKDE (Clinical Documentation and Evaluation Centre, http://www.skde.no) . The objective of the meeting was to see how the various quality registers of cardio-vascular illness can be developed and later integrated into the common Cardio-Vascular Register. More information about the Cardio-Vascular Register, and the draft towards instructions for the register, can be found here (Norwegian)
It was a relatively intense working meeting with introductions before lunch and group work afterwards. Representatives from the Swedish Swedeheart were present and shared their experiences with us.
