Meetings

The latest meeting of the Databases and Coding Working Group took place in Milan during ERS 2017.

Work Plan

The primary focus of the Databases and Coding Working Group is the development of a shared database inventory with a view to identifying opportunities to develop consistent database coding, including sensitive and specific coding systems and an agreement on standard outcome definitions and proxies to strengthen the robustness and repeatability of database studies and to facilitate pooling data across databases to increase study power.
