In the framework of the EMCDDA Epidemiology work programme 1996, the Luxembourgish Focal Point has been charged to perform a comparative study on national encoding systems and Procedures to Avoid Double Counting in Drug Treatment Reporting Systems (PADCTRS). This report indtends to identify PADCTRS existing at the European level and to work out proposals of more efficient and cost effectiv systems, routines, procedures or networks providing drug-related data on individuals aiming to minimize the multiple counting bias by focusing on the following topics:
- infrastructure and functionaliteies of European reporting and encoding systems having regard to the specificity of national contexts;
- advantages and inconveniences of existing PADCTRS on account of the boundaries imposed by the legal and socio-political situation of the participating member state;
- work out of methodological and conceptual guidelines required for the evaluation and/or the set up of cost time effective PADCTRS.
A rough overview of the current developments at the European level shows three unequally represented groups of countries. A first group represented by Greece, Luxembourg, Spain, UK and the Netherlands have set up operational PADCTRS that allow a high quality multiple counting control at the national level. Belgium could also figure in this group although the PADCTRS is only applied to a certain part of the country, that is the French community. A second group including Denmark and Sweden exclusively rely on national registration numbers (PIN) to control the multiple counting bias. A third, much more heterogenous group, composed of Germany, Italy, Ireland, Austria, France and Portugal whether currently proceed to set up drug treatment reporting systems, whether run only local or project related PADCTRS or have no means to control double counting at all even though they rely on well established reporting systems.
The current situation of the two latter groups is partly due to the recency of most drug treatment reporting systems but above all to the political situation and legal requirements in terms of data protection they are bound to.
