European Reference Networks (ERNs) are virtual networks involving healthcare providers across Europe. They aim to tackle complex or rare diseases and conditions that require highly specialised treatment and concentrated knowledge and resources. Health systems in the European Union aim to provide high-quality, cost-effective care. This is particularly difficult with rare or low-prevalence complex diseases or conditions. Between 5.000 and 8.000 rare diseases affect the daily lives of around 30 million people in the EU.
Pr Hélène Dollfus, ERN-EYE coordinator, will do a presentation on "Ontology and Common Data Elements for Collaborative Research in Ophthalmology" during the ARVO meeting.
The ECRD will take place on 10 – 12 May in Vienna, Austria
One year on from their launch, the European reference networks are helping patients access treatment and research from across the EU, writes Vytenis Andriukaitis.
