EURODOPPS: A Collaborative Partnership of Arbor Research and ERA-EDTA

Arbor Research Collaborative for Health and the European Renal Association-European Dialysis and Transplant Association (ERA-EDTA) have partnered to create EURODOPPS. The new EURODOPPS partnership brings together the strengths of two initiatives – the Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (DOPPS) and the ERA-EDTA Registry – in collecting and analyzing epidemiological data on patients on dialysis in Europe.

The partnership establishes the EURODOPPS initiative for study support in Germany, Italy, France, United Kingdom, Belgium, Spain, and Sweden. The partnership also facilitates research conducted by European investigators using EURODOPPS data to address scientific and policy questions that are of interest to the European nephrology community and health care authorities.

The ERA-EDTA Registry collects epidemiologic data from national and regional renal registries in Europe performing scientific research and reporting statistics on dialysis and kidney transplant patients in Europe.
