The role of the NGOR research assistant will involve developing a set of measures of best practice, called quality indicators, through the thorough review of published literature and existing national and international guidelines around the management of these diseases, and engaging with clinical experts to identify key indicators that can feasibly be assessed within the context of the registry.
