The EUPHORIC Project

Page updated on July 19th, 2016

Funded by the European Commission ("Directorate General for Health and Consumers") under the PHP (2003-2008) the EUPHORIC project aimed to define a common set of outcome indicators in some clinically relevant areas and to test them among the participating European countries. In order to disseminate the results of the project, the following products were created: the final report, a video, a brochure, the documents Highlights from the project and Evaluating health systems in order to improve the quality of treatment, a virtual table of discussion, a leaflet and a newsletter.
