The Danish Childhood Cancer Registry (DBCR) is a national clinical quality database collating data on all children with carcinomas and benign CNS tumours, germ cell tumours, endocrine tumours and histiocytoses. DBCR is also based on data reported to existing clinical databases: The Childhood Cancer Database (Copenhagen University Hospital), databases from paediatric departments in Odense, Aalborg and Aarhus, the Cancer Registry and the CPR Register.

DBCR is aimed at monitoring the incidence and treatment of cancer amongst patients aged under 15. Since 1 January, 2003, the registry has registered all patients aged under 15 diagnosed with cancer since 1985. During this period more than 5000 patient pathways have been registered on the database.

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
