About the Committee
ANZSPED has funded the creation of a registry encompassing all paediatric endocrine diagnoses, with participation sought from patients and public hospitals across Australia and New Zealand.
The ANZSPED Registry Subcommittee was formed in 2020 with the purpose of developing an endocrine database to support the work of ANZSPED members. A competitive process was open to all members to submit their proposal to use ANZSPED funding to develop a database/registry that would best benefit ANZSPED members. The Children’s Hospital at Westmead proposal, led by Andrew Biggin was the successful bid.
The subcommittee has been formed to ensure there is representation across ANZSPED membership and this subcommittee will aim to help develop the plan to encompass other conditions and to focus on the longevity of the project.
About the Registry
The registry will provide pooled de-identified data to ANZSPED members and other approved applicants for national/international monitoring of diagnoses, research, and related projects intended for the benefit of future patients.
The APR is expected to commence data collection in early 2022.
APR Governance and steering
The ANZSPED Registry subcommittee is overseeing the development and ongoing operations of the registry, and will review data access requests and project proposals from ANZSPED members and other researchers.
