European Reference Network – OI White Paper
- Posted on Jan 25, 2019
Osteogenesis imperfecta was selected as a case study for the European Reference Network for Rare Bone Diseases (ERN-BOND). The research provides further understanding of the common challenges in diagnosing rare bone conditions. Furthermore, it provides recommendations for improving referrals, reducing diagnostic errors and shortening diagnostic delays.
A White Paper on OI was presented at the EU Commission in February 2018. The paper demonstrated the existing challenges of diagnostics in OI.
“The White Paper provides an overview of the current situation relating to diagnosing OI in the States represented within ERN-BOND. This paper’s main aim is to identify the key challenges and potential solutions to further reduce the identified shortcomings.”
