Certification level: 1
Central personal data controller (CPUA): Karolinska Universitetssjukhuset
The National Quality Registry for Kidney Cancer started in 2004 and has had nationwide coverage since 2005. The collection of data on patients who develop kidney cancer is highly significant to the understanding of the tumour disease in a large patient population.
Purpose and objectives:
- Create consistently good management and treatment for kidney cancer patients across the country.
- Provide information on the incidence of the disease, tumour stage distribution, morphology, treatment patterns, and changes over time.
- Follow up on the objectives set out in the national care programme for kidney cancer.
Registration can be expected to result in more effective diagnosis, quality improvement measures and more standardised management of patients with kidney cancer.
