The Danish Ocular Oncology Database covers patients with choroidal melanoma, retinoblastoma and orbital cancer. The purpose of the DOOG database is to register all cases of cancer in the region of the eyes, except for tumours that have metastasised and are growing in the region of the eyes. These tumours are registered by other specialists.

The database was established in 2011 under the Danish Ocular Oncology Group (DOOG) and is anchored in the Danish Multidisciplinary Cancer Groups. DOOG is responsible for drawing up national guidelines for treating eye tumours in Denmark. Patients with eye/orbital cancer are treated by the eye departments at Copenhagen University Hospital and Aarhus University Hospital. Patients with retinoblastoma are only treated in Aarhus.

The Regional Clinical Quality Databases

Data about clinical quality are collected with the purpose of monitoring and raising the quality of patient treatment in the Danish health-care system. These data can, as well as all other public registers, be made accessible for research projects based on systematic protocols and approved according to the relevant legislations.

Applying for access to data from a regional clinical database requires a list of demands to be obtained. A project description should be attached containing a description of the project explaining the rationale, purpose, methods, budget, publication plan etc.

Furthermore, The Danish Data Protection Agency must approve the project.

Application process

  • Apply via research access (Danish: forskeradgang), an online application system
  • Submit the protocol to The Danish Clinical Registries (RKKP)
  • RKKP registers the application
  • The application is forwarded to the relevant clinical database
  • Potential dialog about adjustment to the protocol
