Population-based cancer survival metrics, 13 Nov 2023, Granada

This workshop described a range of options for presenting survival-based metrics from population-based data. It included metrics that are useful for reporting the impact of cancer on patient survival and approaches for making fair comparison across population groups (including international comparisons). The aim was to give an overview of the methods that are available and their relative merits, rather than the technical details of their calculation (although relevant related references and links to software implementations were given).
