INSPIRE:breast cancer is the second project in INSPIRE. The project will ensure continuous and regular data collection in the future, and publish the first analyses on medical breast cancer treatment.
Last updated:

Breast cancer is the second cancer diagnosis in which the INSPIRE project links drug cancer treatment with diagnostic data and other treatment data in the Cancer Registry of Norway. The project works closely with all parties in the project and the analysis council, to provide an overview of the course of treatment for breast cancer. The final report from INSPIRE:breast cancer was published on 7 April 2022. INSPIRE:breast cancer has been completed, and further operation and updating of medical breast cancer treatment is handled by the Quality Registry for Breast Cancer.
