About DBCG

The Danish Breast Cancer Cooperative Group (DBCG) was established by the Danish Surgical Society in 1976 with the aim of ensuring optimal diagnostic procedures and treatment of breast cancer on a nation-wide basis and thereby to improve the prognosis.

To achieve this DBCG has since the beginning of its activities prepared evidence-based guidelines for the whole country regarding diagnostic procedures and treatment (surgery, radiotherapy, and systemic therapy). These have continuously been further developed and evaluated in randomized trials and quality-control studies.

Already from the start a clinical database was established and the relevant departments of pathology, surgery, and oncology have since then systematically reported information about diagnostics, treatment, and follow-up. From the beginning this reporting happened via standardized data sheets but from 2009 it has gradually been changed to on-line web-based reporting.
