Where are the bottlenecks in the implementation process?

Why do we sometimes fail to implement the best solution in the clinics? A new staff survey will reveal what obstacles are present – and make it easier to implement modern methods while phasing out old, outdated solutions. 

Swedish nomenclature for radiotherapy data

New Swedish nomenclature adopted by 12 of 15 clinics

Twelve of Sweden’s 15 radiotherapy clinics have begun to implement the new standardized Swedish nomenclature for external radiotherapy. Eight clinics have already fully implemented the nomenclature. A common nomenclature is a prerequisite for generating comparable national data.


Swedish quality registry for radiotherapy established

A national quality registry for radiotherapy data is now established in Sweden. It opens an array of new opportunities to investigate the results of different treatment methods, to monitor side effects over the long term and to compare the equipment and techniques used in Sweden’s clinics.


New Swedish standard for radiotherapy data

There is now a standardised Swedish nomenclature for radiotherapy. It provides the healthcare sector, researchers and companies with a common language. Uniform and comparable national data is thus created.


Uniform database solution provides comparable radiotherapy data

The Swedish Testbed for Innovative Radiotherapy is developing a system for the automatic transfer of information on how patients are treated with radiotherapy to a database that can be linked to diagnosis-specific quality registers.
