In November 2018, the APAC MRDR was invited to speak at the Inaugural Clinical Registries Summit in Melbourne, Australia.
The Clinical Registries Summit aims to showcase the achievements of clinical registry activity in Australia and is an opportunity for clinicians, researchers, funders, and other key stakeholders to come together and hear about the impact of registries on patient outcomes.
Clinical registries are databases that systematically collect health-related information about individuals who are either diagnosed with a particular illness, managed by a specific healthcare resource (e.g. intensive care), or treated with a particular surgical procedure. The APAC MRDR is a clinical quality registry that is designed to monitor patient outcomes and report on quality of care.
Clinical registries are being recognised for their role in quality improvement, supporting clinical research, contributing to evidence-based practice, and influencing public health policies.
