Update on the PancreOs project
The kick-off meeting of the Pancreatic cancer overall survival registry (PancreOs) took place on 17 March in Madrid, Spain. The aim of the meeting was to discuss the feasibility of building a sustainable European pancreatic cancer registry, to consider comparability and exchange of data, and to produce global indicators on the clinical management of pancreatic cancer in Europe. The PancreoOs project collaborates with the Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the European Network of Cancer Registries (ENCR).
All participants agreed to develop a hospital-based European Pancreatic Cancer Registry (PancreOs). The JRC and the ENCR are involved in preparing a data collection protocol taking into account the results of a pilot study carried out in seven hospitals in Spain, existing data collection protocols, and international recommendations.
