Welcome to the 2021 ANCR annual symposium!

The Association of the Nordic Cancer Registries invites you to an online one-day symposium on 2 September 2021 to share research news and updates on ongoing studies.

Due to the Corona status in the Nordic countries, we have decided to cancel the annual physical meeting for the second year running. At the same time, there is a need to get together and share news based on our Nordic registries within the cancer area - thus the symposium will be held online.

Two workshops will also be held. You will able to choose which workshop you want to participate in on the actual day of the symposium.

Expert registrars
Workshop on data quality in cancer registries:
In this workshop we will present and discuss the data quality in cancer registries. Focus will be on specifying the term quality in the context of cancer data/notifications and the procedures that are carried out in our registries to ensure the quality of cancer registration. This includes, for example, quality checks, education, manuals etc. The format of the workshop will be a short presentation from each cancer registry followed by a discussion. The presentation should include information about quality check procedures that are done in each registry, how these are reported and what are the plans for the future.

Epidemiology & statistics
Workshop on measures of cancer patient survival:
In this workshop, we will present and discuss measures of cancer patient survival. The focus will be on measures of relevance when comparing trends in cancer patient survival across countries. We will discuss methodological challenges, e.g. age-standardisation and differences in background population mortality between countries. The format will be a presentation followed by a panel discussion with the possibility for the participants to ask questions and engage in the discussion.
