The Pros and Cons of Cancer Registration E. Grundmann It may seem strange for somebody to hold a symposium on cancer regis tration and then submit a paper under the heading "The Pros and Cons of Cancer Registration." Indeed, this may be quite amazing to those of my colleagues who have been endeavoring for years or decades to provide a world-wide system of cancer registration. To be quite frank, this is exactly what I intended. Generally speaking, as scientists we are convinced that the work we do is worth while. We are in fact supported in this attitude by pub lic opinion, if one bears in mind that science is future-oriented. It may be said that science is a way for building the future, and that progressive-mindedness is - to use a modern word - "in." Never theless, we may somehow hesitate at this fashionable word. After all, science is not "in" in the way this word is interpreted by the younger generation. Indeed, this younger generation is much too sceptical whenever confronted with anything done by the older generation - and science is pursued primarily by the "establishment." Rather, it is "in" to criticize the system of society and, if possible, to overcome this system, which is responsible not only for many evils, but also for many illnesses.

This book is the standard reference manual of cancer registration methodology and uses. It provides guidelines on all aspects, such as the establishment of a registry, collection, coding, verification and analysis of data, and the uses to which cancer registry data may be put. Emphasis is on population-based registration, which provides information on a defined population and permits calculation of incidence rates. Such registries are useful in cancer epidemiology (identification of possible aetiological factors), in planning future health services, and in monitoring the effectiveness of cancer prevention and treatment.

This guidance document consists of six chapters that provide technical advice to planners and health specialists in low and middle-income countries wishing to implement and develop Population-based Cancer Registration (PBCR) as information system that inform cancer control policy. This first chapter has placed the need for cancer registration in the context of the rapidly increasing burden from the disease seen worldwide. Chapter 2 describes the characteristics of the different types of cancer registry and the unique functions of PBCRs and their present status worldwide. Chapters 3 and 4 outline the critical steps in planning and developing a PBCR in lower-resource settings, including discussion of the key sources of information required and the minimal standard set of data items that the PBCR should collect. Aspects in the set-up that will help ensure the sustainability of the registry are emphasized, including comments on infrastructure and resource requirements as well as the commitment of stakeholders. Chapter 5 describes the main techniques to evaluate and further enhance the data quality at the PBCR. Chapter 6 provides some advice on reporting the results to the community at large in support of cancer control and thus promoting the increasing utility of the registry.

Migration-sensitive monitoring of health is essential in order to assess and react to changing health care needs of culturally diverse groups in Europe. One example is cancer registration, allowing for the ascertainment and analysis of trends in cancer occurrence and survival in good time. This book for the first time presents a detailed overview and methodological discussion of migration-sensitive cancer registration in selected European countries. It describes the current situation on the European level by means of five country reports, written in close collaborations with local experts. It examines the ideas of developing common indicators, standardizing data collection procedures and enhancing networking throughout Europe.

Gives cancer registries abundant technical and methodological advice on ways to take advantage of computerized systems for data collection. Firmly rooted in the experiences of cancer registries in Europe and Canada, the report responds to the growing need for registries to provide an information system that goes beyond traditional estimates of incidence. Complete, valid, and comparable data are increasingly needed to support the evaluation of screening programs, the monitoring of patterns of patient referral, and studies of patient survival.
