Objective

Deliverables

  • Web-based training and certification tools online

    Since the mean thyroid size in population samples reflects the iodine status, most of the regional surveys will include thyroid ultrasound measurements. To minimise the bias across the studies, a web-based reader certification tool will be established. Beyond the information integrated in the training tool (see Task 2.4), ultrasound observers will be offered to be certificated according to the standards of the Study of Health in Pomerania (SHIP)32. From a pool of 100 ultrasound images, each observer has to read a randomly selected set of 2 x 25 ultrasound images for dimensions of the thyroid lobes. The results of the readings will be analysed for intra- and inter-observer differences and compared to the readings of two EUthyroid expert sonographers. Statistical analyses will be performed using Bland & Altman plots; a mean bias of ± 5% and a 2SD of ± 25% must not be exceeded. In case a certification will have not been passed, the procedure can be repeated after a new training cycle. After successful certification, a EUthyroid certificate can be printed out, indicating that the exam was passed was passed by the reader. As for the training module, also the certification module will be published on the EUthyroid websites. The access to the module will also be open to researchers and study staff outside the EUthyroid consortium to strategically establish EUthyroid as a gold standard for international thyroid ultrasound studies.

  • Website published

    WP6 will create a multilingual website (consumer and publicly accessible). It will be the main information resource for EUthyroid describing the project objectives and phases, work areas, main results, publications and links to relevant websites. The content of the EUthyroid website will be divided in sections for the various stakeholder groups based on the requirements defined in the communication plan. The content will be regularly updated with input of all partners to keep interested stake holders and the public informed of the project’s objectives and progress as well as general issues about iodine deficiency. Additional visitors will be attracted by using established networks such as YouTube. The website will also report on new developments, open positions and the work done within the EUthyroid consortium on a more general basis. It will exploit synergies with the website of IGN to transfer visibility from this established portal. The site layout and graphic aspect will be specifically designed to optimise communication to scientific experts, policy makers and also to the general public and allow downloading of dissemination material. The website will ensure appropriate representation of health issues through complying with the HONcode principles and applying for a HON certificate. A very limited version of the website will be made available in a wider variety of languages to support regional monitors in their dissemination tasks.

  • Infrastructure of the data transfer unit established

    A joint database will be established to collect and pool standardised national and regional IDD monitoring data. The University Medicine Greifswald will also take responsibility to back-up the WP1 database on registry data. Both the WP and WP2 databases will be organised according to identical standards. The University Medicine Greifswald will be in charge for the maintenance of the centralised databases and the transfer of EUthyroid data to the scientific community. Existing data infrastructure established for large-scale population and patient studies will be extended by experienced computer scientists and data managers. The data management is described in more detail in section 2.2.1.1.

  • Communication plan established

    The communication plan will fix all relevant issues for an optimised dissemination strategy including target audiences, distribution lists, national contact lists for regional monitors, the selection of appropriate measures and tools in specific areas of communication and the definition of key messages. The communication plan will outline risk factors and counter measures regarding the strategic aims of the dissemination and will be updated continuously during the lifetime of the project.
