The above line has an error - remove the parentheses.
The name of the selected page, which will be passed as argument to the raisecommand callback
is the name of the page as you defined in the NoteBook.add() method, i.e. in your example
'Project' or 'Database' .
If I understood you correctly, you might do something like this:

    def refreshDB(self, pagename):
        if pagename == 'Database':
             # stuff to refresh the database contents here

I hope this helps
