The Danish Pancreatic Cancer Database (DPCD) is a national clinical database for patients with pancreatic cancer. The database currently covers data on clinical aspects and treatment to patients with pancreatic duodenal adenocarcinomas (PA) and duodenal and periampullary adenocarcinomas.

The main purpose of the database is to promote and ensure uniform, evidence-based investigation and treatment of patients with duodenal and pancreatic cancer in Denmark. The results of the database are intended to ensure that treatment outcomes in Denmark are in line with international results.

DPCD was established in 2011 since when more than 2880 patient pathways have been notified, with about 860 being reported annually. DPCD is anchored in the Danish Pancreatic Cancer Group (DPCG).
