SWESPINE 25 years

In 2023, the national Swedish spine register, Swespine, has been in use for 25 years. The Swedish spine society (4s) therefore decided to focus on this anniversary in the society’s annual meeting on November 9-10, 2023 in Stockholm.

The aims were to present experiences from different national spine registries, and to reflect over register data usability in our daily work as well as in research. What are success factors and problems, and how can we increase cooperation between international registries and exchange experiences.

We are sorry, but due to technical errors, the sound can disappear in some presentations, but we hope the messages will be clear through the slides anyway!
