Abstract: Implementation of International Chart Review Studies: An Assessment of Key Design and Operational Considerations for Successful Conduct

There is an increased need to conduct international chart review studies (chart reviews) since healthcare databases with required information are not consistently available.

For successful implementation, awareness of significant multi-national design and operational considerations is necessary.
