The Continuous Monitoring Programme started in 2018 to evaluate the performance of ERNs and ensure they are working towards their goal.
At the outset of the ERN initiative, the Board of Member States approved seven areas of intervention for ERNs. For each area, an objective and some relevant indicators were defined and agreed by all ERNs, becoming what is known as the core set of ERN indicators. With the launch of multi-year direct grants for ERNs (in September 2023), several key performance indicators used to assess the fulfilment of grant obligations have been added to the original set of indicators. See the complete list of indicators.
The Continuous Monitoring Programme is a mandatory exercise for Health Care Providers (HCPs) who are Full Members or Affiliated Partners of MetabERN.
In 2024, MetabERN HCPs will participate in this exercise following two main steps.
