Development of the CERTAIN Registry, the Cooperative European Paediatric Renal TransplAnt INitiative registry founded by the Society for Paediatric Nephrology in Austria, Germany & Switzerland (GPN), aims to provide pertinent information on the short- and long-term outcome of paediatric renal allograft recipients for clinical research, quality assurance and improved patient care purposes. It co-operates with institutions such as Eurotransplant, CTS Heidelberg, European Society for Paediatric Nephrology (ESPN), Curatorship for Dialysis and Kidney Transplantation KfH (Kuratorium für Dialyse und Nierentransplantation e.V.) and the German Organ Transplantation Foundation DSO (Deutsche Stiftung Organtransplantation), thus facilitating comprehensive data collection and reducing manual data input efforts of the participating clinicians. Thanks to the large number of paediatric nephrology and transplantation centres involved, the registry will allow speedy collection of high-quality data needed for reliable scientific analysis.

The CERTAIN Registry is realised as a state-of-the-art web application supporting not only the data entry and quality assurance process but also providing a 24/7 access to the saved data and real-time data analysis for the participating centres.
