The Danish Gynaecological Cancer Database (DGCD) is a national multidisciplinary clinical quality database that gets reports from gynaecologists, pathologists, oncologists and nurses. The aim of DGCD is to form part of quality assurance and the development of pathoanatomical assessments and the surgical, nursing, chemo/radiological treatment of gynaecological cancer in Denmark.

DGCD covers all patients in Denmark diagnosed after 1 January, 2005 with either ovarian, corpus or cervical cancer and has been operating nationally since 2005. Data is notified via the Clinical Measurement System (KMS), and cross-batched with data from the National Patient Register, Cause of Death Register, Pathology Register and the CPR Register.
