The Danish register for adolescents with acquired brain injury (DRUE) is a clinical quality database covering information about individuals aged between 15 - 30 suspected of having acquired brain damage, understood as brain damage arising 28 days after birth or later. This may involve all levels of severity from mild functional effects to pronounced disability.
DRUE is intended to ensure that all adolescents with, or with suspected, acquired brain damage are offered neuromedical investigation of the complexity of any brain damage, and if required, referral to the highest possible quality neuro rehabilitation.
Reports are submitted to the database for the Clinical Measurement System (KMS). Other data comes from the National Patient Register (LPR), municipal information systems for rehabilitation services and the Danish Register for Evaluating Marginalisation (DREAM). Finally, questionnaire data is obtained from patients.

The Regional Clinical Quality Databases
Data about clinical quality are collected with the purpose of monitoring and raising the quality of patient treatment in the Danish health-care system. These data can, as well as all other public registers, be made accessible for research projects based on systematic protocols and approved according to the relevant legislations.
Applying for access to data from a regional clinical database requires a list of demands to be obtained. A project description should be attached containing a description of the project explaining the rationale, purpose, methods, budget, publication plan etc.
Furthermore, The Danish Data Protection Agency must approve the project.
- Apply via research access (Danish: forskeradgang), an online application system
- Submit the protocol to The Danish Clinical Registries (RKKP)
- RKKP registers the application
- The application is forwarded to the relevant clinical database
- Potential dialog about adjustment to the protocol
- Approval and extradition of data (expected 6 months after application)
The Regional clinical quality databases subject to rules for treatment of personal data, that should secure high quality of patient treatment in Denmark.
