Nordic collaboration cancer care pathways

Nordic collaboration cancer care pathways is a multidisciplinary research and experience exchange network.

The aim to inspire and to conduct multidisciplinary and cross-country comparative research of the function, impacts and effectiveness of the standardized cancer pathways that have been developed in Denmark, Norway and Sweden.

We believe we can learn from each other better via comparative research. The collaboration supports and coordinates Nordic research projects. Areas with ongoing collaboration:

  • Diagnostic centers, Charlotta Sävblom (charlotta.savblom@sll.se)
  • National cohorts, Bolette Dankert (boda@cancer.dk)
  • Patient experience, Lisa Åkesson (lisa.akesson@regionostergotland.se)
  • Coordinators, Øyvind Antonsen (oant@ahus.no)
  • Individualization vs standardization, Erna Håland (erna.haland@ntnu.no)
  • Crowding out/Side effects, Bonnie Poksinska (bonnie.poksinska@liu.se)

The network is supported by the Nordic Cancer Union and Confederation of Regional Cancer Centres in Sweden.
