Abstract
Computer technique in the Czech Socialist Republic, as well as in other countries, has been increasingly used for the evaluation of epidemiological situation of tuberculosis control programmes, and for the effectivity and impact of individual control measures. The notification system of new tuberculous cases detected has been switched in the Czech Socialist Republic into a longtime follow-up of all the patients reported for tuberculosis. In all the new or relapse cases the data on the form and location of disease, the mode of detection, time needed for diagnosis or possible delay in diagnosis due to patients or doctors are analyzed. At regular one-year intervals the data on the treatment and sick-leave are evaluated. The tuberculosis register was put into operation in the Czech Socialist Republic on January 1, 1981. The two-year experience revealed the possibility of operative registration of tuberculous patients if a reliable system of data collection from district departments tuberculosis and respiratory diseases and that of control programmes in a computer had been built up. The advantage of tuberculosis register consists in dynamic information on patients which is processed and published at one-month, three--month, or one-year intervals. The system of tuberculosis register in the Czech Socialist Republic is compared to the advantages and disadvantages of retrospective and prospective studies, one-phase or repeated surveys, and to registers operating in Denmark, Sweden, Finland, the Netherlands, Bavaria, and Scotland. The tuberculosis register in the Czech Socialist Republic is presently considered as an advantageous approach to the establishment of tuberculosis surveillance system.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Abstract
The Swedish Register of Palliative Care (SRPC) is a national quality register that collects data about end-of-life care from healthcare providers that care for dying patients. Data are used for quality control and research. Data are mainly collected with an end-of-life questionnaire (ELQ), which is completed by healthcare staff after the death of a patient. A previous validity assessment of the ELQ showed insufficient validity in some items including symptom relief. The aim of this study was to examine the validity of the revised ELQ.
Data from 100 consecutive patients' medical records at two specialised palliative care units were used to complete new ELQs, which were then compared to the ELQ registrations from the SRPC for the same patients. The level of agreement was calculated for each ELQ item. To account for the possibility of the agreement occurring by chance, Cohen's kappa was calculated for suitable items. To examine the extent of registration mistakes when transferring the paper form to the web, the original paper versions of the ELQ filled out at the units were compared to data from the ELQs reported to the SRPC.
Level of agreement between ELQ registrations from the SRPC and the new ELQs based on the medical records varied between 0.55 and 1.00, where 24 items showed level of agreement above 0.80 and 9 items showed level of agreement below 0.80. Cohen's kappa with 95% confidence intervals was calculated for 24 items. The kappa values showed that two items had poor agreement, four fair agreement, 11 moderate agreement, five good agreement and two very good agreement. The level of agreement varied between 0.93 and 1.00 when comparing the ELQ registrations in the SRPC and the paper forms.
The revised ELQ contains more items with high levels of agreement between registrations in the SRPC and notes in the patients' medical records when compared to the previous version. Validating issues around symptom assessment remains a challenge in our model of quality assessment.
