On YouTube: Presentation on PBCRs' role in cancer control

Dr Freddie Bray, Head of the Cancer Surveillance Branch (CSU) at the International Agency for Research at Cancer (IARC), presents a brief overview of population-based cancer registries (PBCRs) and their role in cancer control, with a focus on the Sub Saharan Africa region.
He explains the rationale for the sustainable development of cancer registry data, what defines a population-based cancer registry, and presents how IARC is working to increase coverage.  He identified some of the challenges to developing registries and offers solutions to  facilitate the development of cancer registration in Africa which would also be application to other LMIC's, and regions.

The course is organized at Corte, Université de Corse (France) from 1st to 05th July 2024. The Corsican Summer School on Modern Methods in Biostatistics and Epidemiology is a crucial event for learning more about statistical methods and recent advances in statistical methods for analysing excess risk. The fourth edition, organized by Professor Roch Giorgi and by the Challenges in the Estimation of Net SURvival (CENSUR) working survival Group.

The Summer School is aimed at biostatisticians, statisticians, epidemiologists; researchers and students; those working in a registry of cancer, of chronic disease or in any other field relevant to these methodologies and applications.

Publication: Primary brain and CNS tumours in adults in Belgium, 2004-2020

The Belgian Cancer Registry (BCR) is pleased to announce its new publication: “Primary brain and other central nervous system (CNS) tumours in adults in Belgium 2004-2020”. Epidemiological data on incidence, prevalence, survival, trends, and projections are presented in this report.

The report (attached) is also freely downloadable from https://kankerregister.org/media/docs/publications/rapporten/NeuroOnco_Epidemio_Fullversion.pdf and is the first nationwide publication of our Registry focusing on primary brain and other CNS tumours.

All chapters of the publication are divided by primary location of the tumour (meninges, brain, spinal cord, cranial nerves, pituitary, and pineal glands and craniopharyngeal duct) and provide results based on sex, age group, histological subtype and behaviour of the tumour. Please find a summary below.

The BCR welcomes questions from the registry community (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and would appreciate if you could forward this news to interested colleagues.
