Registration of treatment variables in Population Based Cancer Registries, 13 Nov 2023, Granada

Availability of treatment data and their level of detail vary substantially between Population Based Cancer Registries. The aim of the ENCR workshop was to present and discuss the recommendations for the collection and recording of treatment variables, compiled by the European Working Group on Treatment Data Harmonisation. Classification systems, terminology and data sources were discussed and related to the treatment modalities, i.e. surgery, radiotherapy and systemic therapy (chemotherapy, targeted therapy, hormonal therapy, immunotherapy, etc.).

The workshop took place as a side event to the ENCR-IACR Scientific Conference in Granada, Spain.
