The Nordic Course in Clinical Trials Methodology in Oncology is organised for the sixth time as a collaborative project involving academia in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. Treatment development in the oncology area is accelerating. The conduct of clinical trials is mandatory to develop and improve treatment for cancer patients. The design of clinical trials in oncology is changing and has become more complex encompassing regulatory aspects, demand of quality control and assurance as well as integrating research into daily care. Complexity is even more increased due to the important issues of translational research and challenges related to collaboration in multidisciplinary teams. The number of clinical trials performed in the Nordic region is currently decreasing. Closer collaboration within the Nordic countries may counteract this trend. Another challenge is how to succeed in recruiting patients within set timelines. These and many other issues will be discussed during the course. The aim of the course is to increase participant’s knowledge in clinical trials methodology and also strengthen important collaborations in research and network-building between the Nordic countries.
