Trials registers, trials results registers and other research registers:
challenges and opportunities
16 July 2009
University of York
Increasing national and international interest in identifying, recording and
promoting access to healthcare trials and their results has seen the
development of large numbers of trials registers, and more recently, results
registers. Trials registers provide information on current and recently
completed research and results registers provide information on completed
research. This type of information is useful for research commissioning,
health technology assessments, systematic reviews and product development.
Trials registers, results registers and other research registers are
developing quickly and provide challenges in terms of identification,
efficient searching and record management. This one day training course will
highlight the background to the development of trial registers and trial
results registers, will discuss the types of registers and their relative
coverage, and will offer practical advice on searching registers and
managing register records.
The training course presenters will be Julie Glanville and Carol Lefebvre.
Julie Glanville is Project Director, Information Services, York Health
Economics Consortium, University of York. Carol Lefebvre is the Senior
Information Specialist at the UK Cochrane Centre. Julie and Carol are
co-authors of the searching chapter of the Cochrane Handbook and have many
years' experience of identifying trials evidence.
