About national clinical practice guidelines

National cancer specific clinical practice guidelines support evidence-based clinical decision-making and contribute to high quality cancer care in Denmark.

Background

The Danish Center for Clinical Practice Guidelines | Cancer was established in late 2017 to enhance and improve the development and update of cancer guidelines. The center is hosted by The Danish Clinical Registries (RKKP) and is run in close cooperation with the Danish Multidisciplinary Cancer Groups (DMCG.dk) with funding from the fourth National Cancer Plan and RKKP.

Purpose

The national clinical cancer guidelines contain transparent and systematically prepared scientific recommendations developed to support medical decisions. The guidelines describe and appraise the scientific evidence behind the clinical recommendations and cover the entire patient trajectory; screening, diagnosis, treatment, care, rehabilitation and palliation for specific groups of cancer patients.

The guidelines are based on scientific evidence and clinical best practice, with the purpose to support effective, safe and equitable cancer care across the continuum of cancer treatment.
