Data Collection

The ERA-EDTA Registry collects data on RRT at an annual basis via the national and regional renal registries in Europe. These data include the patient's date of birth, gender, cause of renal failure, comorbidity status, date of start of first RRT, history of RRT with dates and changes of modality, treatment centre, date and cause of death and information concerning transfer from or to other renal registries.

In addition, from registries that have additional data items available, the ERA-EDTA Registry now also collects data on patient characteristics (physical examination and laboratory measurements), therapy characteristics (general and HD and PD specific), and intermediate outcomes.
