The first edition of this workshop was organised by Leiden University in 2019. Talks were given about utilising NLP to for example predict ADHD diagnosis, and to use patient forums as a source for knowledge.
Two years later, Radboud University organised the second edition, with its main discussion theme being: “Towards a Research Community for Sharing Healthcare Records for Natural Language Processing”. Once again, many talks were given by experts from the Netherlands and Belgium. A broad number of subjects related to medical NLP were discussed, among others: the development of a translation engine for clinical translations and using free text and coded electronical health record data to identify acute drug-induced kidney injury.
