The objective of this course is to impart foundational knowledge to support the development of cancer registries and to provide detailed coding methodology for several specific cancer sites. The agenda is shaped in a way to suit both the newly established, re-established or to-be established population based registries and new registrars that are just starting to work in existing cancer registries. In particular, we are targeting the Balkan region and Eastern Europe, however participants from any European Cancer Registries are welcome.
