Paediatric Oncology for Cancer Registries Training course

IARC, Lyon (France), 25 to 29 November 2013

The Paediatric Oncology for Cancer Registries is a unique course, organized by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in the framework of the European Network for Cancer Research in Children and Adolescents (ENCCA), a Network of Excellence funded by the European Commission in FP7. The course aims to strengthen knowledge of epidemiology, biology, clinical practice, clinical research, survivorship, and ethical issues in paediatric oncology. The course provided insight into clinical practice and developed an understanding of the linkage between clinical data and population-based cancer registries. Upon completion of the course, the participants will be able to initiate the collection of highly specific data items, understand their meaning, and apply the relevant quality control to these data, thus actively contributing to the relevant international studies. In the framework of the ENCR/JRC collaboration and given the clear value in the course's mandate to facilitate the harmonisation of cancer data across Europe, participant attendance in this training course was sponsored in part by the JRC.
