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 programmes, the monitoring of patterns of patient referral, and studies of patient survival.
