News from working groups: Clinical Study Reports?

In June 2017 ISDB Committee members and other bulletins interested, participated in a workshop on clinical study reports (CSRs). This two day workshop was organized by the Institut für Qualität und Wirtschaftlichkeit im Gesundheitswesen (Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care, IQWIG) in Cologne, Germany.
