Organisation profile

Danish Center for Clinical Health Services Research (DACS) is a multidisciplinary research center, which conducts research on how to improve quality of healthcare.

The research is focused on answering the following questions:

  • How can the quality of healthcare be improved most effectively?
  • Is there unwarranted variation/disparities in quality of care? What are the implications for the patients and the healthcare system and how can the variation/disparities be eliminated?
  • Which clinical interventions are most effective and for which patients?

DACS was established on 1st January 2018 as a joint venture between the Faculty of Health, Aalborg University and Region North Denmark, represented by Aalborg University Hospital and Psychiatry in Region North Denmark.
