Action on Transparency: Study registration at University Hospital Basel
In close collaboration with the DKF, the University Hospital of Basel (USB) is breaking new ground to promote the publication of clinical studies. A programme titled "Study scandal" aired on the "Puls" show on the Swiss television channel SRF at the beginning of February. It referred to the large number of clinical trials in Switzerland, which, according to the programme's research, end up being stowed away unpublished.

Research using data from clinical practice
How can the innumerable health-related information generated daily in a hospital be used meaningfully and to the advantage of future generations of patients? The DKF together with the ICT Department of the University Hospital Basel has established processes to facilitate the procurement of datasets for clinical research projects. Researchers at the USB will have a sigle point of contact for such inquiries, where they can also obtain comprehensive advice on research with data and samples collected in routine practice.

Tailor-made solutions for statistics and data management
At the DKF, the statistical tool R is being optimised for use in clinical research. R is a programming environment for statistical calculations and graphics that can be used and adapted in many ways.
