Oslo University Hospital (OUS) was designated as a European Comprehensive Cancer Centre (CCC) by The Organisation of European Cancer Institutions (OECI) in 2017. This concept, on how to organise a cancer centre within a university hospital, is vital for the consistent delivery of high level quality of care and research within the cancer field. OUS-CCC was successfully reaccredited by The in 2023 for five new years.
OUS CCC Management Structure
Cancer management demands coordination across organizational silos, disciplines and professions. Not least due to higher prevalence and the fast-growing development in knowledge and technology. The structural coordination of cancer care and research are managed through The CCC Board (Kreftstyret), The CCC Professional Council (Fagrådet), and The CCC Research Council (Forskningsutvalget).
The CCC Board contributes to strengthening the line managements’ power of action across organisational divides and where activities are located. This is strived for by reinforcing the overall ability to coordinate work with operational challenges and the development and implementation of the cancer strategy. The work includes diagnostics, treatment, research, care and rehabilitation.
The CCC Professional Council is the extension of the board with additional expertise from several medical professions, department heads, and patient and union representatives.
