INSPIRE:kidney cancer

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

Kidney cancer is the third cancer diagnosis in which the INSPIRE project  links drug cancer treatment with diagnostic data and other treatment data in the Cancer Registry.

The project works closely with all parties in the project and the analysis council, to provide an overview of the course of treatment for kidney cancer. The project runs through 2022.

Kidney cancer is one of the types of cancer for which it is not affiliated with a quality registry. This means that there is somewhat less information about assessment, follow-up and treatment than for other types of cancer.

In INSPIRE, data is collected for all cancers.

The purpose of INSPIRE:kidney cancer is to find out how we should process and prepare drug data for data dispensing for cancers without a quality registry.
