Nordic collaboration cancer care pathways is a multidisciplinary research and experience exchange network.
The aim is 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.
In November 7th the annual meeting for Nordic Collaboration Cancer Patient Pathways was held in Trondheim. This year 65 participants from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Faroe Islands and Sweden were gathered to discuss progress and challenges of working with cancer patient pathways. The projects supported by funding from Nordic Council of Ministers made short presentations on the recent progress.
The annual meeting 2020 will be held at the Danish Cancer Society 5–6 November 2020. Suggestions for themes and group meetings are very welcome.
Nordic collaboration cancer care pathways has decided on applications to be awarded research project grants within research on pakkeforlob/cancer patient pathways.
The pupose of the grant is to support Nordic collaborations within research on pakkeforlob/cancer patient pathways. Participation is required from at least two Nordic countries.
We believe we can learn from each other better via comparative research. The collaboration supports and coordinates Nordic research projects. Areas with ongoing collaboration:
The network is supported by the Nordic Cancer Union and Confederation of Regional Cancer Centres in Sweden.
