CoCanCPG Database of Cancer Uncertainties (DoCU)  –  About this new database – from NICE

The database

“Project background
CoCanCPG (Coordination of Cancer Clinical Practice Guidelines in Europe) is a European Commission funded consortium of 16 institutional partners from 11 countries. The UK’s National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), working with the consortium, has developed this database of cancer uncertainties (DoCU) in the management of cancer that have been identified during guideline development.

Development of the database
The overall objective of the project is to set up, within CoCanCPG, a framework and database for systematically identifying evidence gaps and formulating and prioritising recommendations for future research in cancer. These evidence gaps or ‘uncertainties’ can be highlighted during guideline development (including systematic reviews and economic modelling) or post-production (exploring the research recommendations and other standalone uncertainties in cancer management in the guidance). Further details about identifying uncertainties and processing them can be found in the ‘Collecting Uncertainties’ page.

The database is a developmental project, which is being tested in this pilot phase. The pilot period ends at the end of January 2010.

The database is funded by the EU and hosted and administered by NICE.”
