The Danish National Penile Cancer database (DaPeCa) is a nationwide clinical quality database containing data about diagnosis and treatment for patients with penile cancers.

DaPeCa is aimed at monitoring the quality of diagnosing and treating penile cancers in Denmark and for all patients with penile cancer in Denmark to be included so as to ensure that the database gives a true picture of the quality of diagnosis and treatment of patients with penile cancer.

The database is very largely based on data notified to the Danish Pathology Register (LRP) or the National Patient Register (LPR), supplemented with selected clinical data entered directly on a data entry module by doctors in highly specialised units.

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
  • Approval and extradition of data (expected 6 months after application)



The Regional clinical quality databases subject to rules for treatment of personal data, that should secure high quality of patient treatment in Denmark. These legislations include The Act on Processing of Personal Data (Danish: Persondataloven) and The Danish Act of Health (Danish: Sundhedloven). These legislations ensure that data access is limited to relevant purposes.
