TransplantChild Key Activities
During 2023, the following activities will be carried out in TransplantChild frame
ERNs’ virtual consultations are carried out through the CPMS system these advisory boards follow a series of steps. Experts across Europe are invited to collaborate giving advice in consultation panels in the diagnosis or treatment of low prevalence and complex conditions.
Clinical Practice Guidelines
The development of Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs) is one of the key objectives of ERN TransplantChild, since it is one of the basis to improve healthcare in paediatric transplantation.
Paediatric Transplantation European Registry (PETER) is a new rational, efficient, interoperable, open, accessible paediatric transplant registry for all type of paediatric transplantation. PETER will allow generating real world evidence monitoring by the identification of common outcomes for all types of transplant. This registry can be used as a model to support care and research for the benefit of patients, improvement of the transplanted patient healthcare, their life expectancy and long-term QoL of children and their families.
Continuous ERN Monitoring
The European Commission has set up a Continuous Monititoring System for the European Reference Networks. This exercise is an obligation for the ERN membership (Full Members and Affiliated Partners). Each healthcare provider (HCP) member of ERN TransplantChild has the responsibility to provide information on the number of patients with rare diseases that it is treating, as well as other activities undertaken to support the network (e.g. CPMS, publication and education/training activities). Once per year, the ERN TransplantChild coordination is responsible for collecting the data and to submit it to the EC.
The next data collection will be due in February 2024. Therefore, we will contact all member HCPs in January 2024 to start providing the required dating for the year 2023.
The EU created a new virtual platform. To date, two indicators (new patients and use of orphacodes) must be submitted there. Please check here how to get access to this tool.
