Survey about registration practices of childhood cancer and its late effects among ENCR members
The Slovenian cancer registry is conducting a short survey with the aim to better understand the level of detail of data on registered paediatric cancer cases in Europe. The main purpose is to identify registries that have or are planning to have detailed data on paediatric cancer patients and furthermore, if any registries have or are planning to have in place systematic registration of late effects of childhood cancer treatment for potential collaboration in the future. We kindly ask you to fill out the survey, which will take about 5-10 minutes. If you have any questions, please contact Ana Mihor at amihor@onko-i.si. Deadline: 31 July 2022

Covid-19 impact on cancer cases recorded in 2020 and comparison with cancer incidence estimates
The JRC and the ENCR are investigating the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the cancer cases recorded in 2020 across European countries and possible differences with 2020 cancer burden estimates. If your Cancer Registry is interested in participating in this comparison exercise with aggregated final or preliminary cancer incidence and mortality data for 2020, please contact us at JRC-ENCR@ec.europa.eu
