Science Museum Specialty Museum. Take a look at our Oslo trip planner to schedule your visit to The Norwegian Cancer Society's Science Centre and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday. TripAdvisor Traveler Rating. What a great information center to learn about cancer and what it means to those affected, not only the patients but also the family. We got a very good guided tour by one of the volunteers. The ground floor is filled with good examples of how cancer affects daily living activities and how some of the challenges can be alleviated. The lower level has a very good science part, explaining how cancer can develop, why it is so difficult to detect and treat, but also how it can be treated and especially a lot of success stories. Next time I will bring the kids. Every country should have a museum like this.
The Norwegian Cancer Society's Science Centre Reviews
A visionary plan
The Norwegian cancer Society is one of the largest organisations in Norway representing the voices of those affected by cancer. In , the organisation had members, 25 volunteers and employees, who are all dedicated to promoting cancer cause. We fight cancer locally, nationally and globally through research and preventive measures, information, support, advice and lobbying. NCS leads the way. We have introduced a number of vital improvements within the field of cancer. Mammogram screening, the Norwegian Cancer Registry, the Varde centres for patients and their families, cancer coordinators in the municipalities and a science centre are just some of the measures we have initiated. NCS's objectives as enshrined in the Articles of Association are to work to prevent and reduce cancer, and to improve quality of life for patients and their families. These objectives will be realised through the following means:.

How can we make clinical trials an integrated part of cancer treatment in Norway so that more patients can gain access to new and better treatments? We arranged a webinar with key experts and politicians to answer this question. Watch the entire webinar on Youtube:. This is unacceptable, but how can we change it? The Norwegian Ministry of Health and Care Services has said that clinical studies should be an integrated part of patient treatment in Norway. This is especially relevant when it comes to the advent of new cancer treatments and the fact that the number of clinical trials is decreasing in Norway. An overarching goal is to get more, useful clinical studies to Norway, so that more patients can receive better treatments, and ultimately achieve a more efficient health service. Engelstad mentioned many important aspects to achieve this. Engelstad stressed that Norway needs to build capacity, so that feasibility, recruitment and approval is accelerated. Engelstad also talked about building competency, by including clinical research, gene therapy and artificial intelligence in education.
