Cancer Registry Management: Principles & Practices for Hospitals and Central Registries / Edition 3 available in Other Format
Cancer registration is an important and fundamental tool in cancer control. A population-based cancer registry collects the data from many healthcare facilities in a defined geographic area and can serve to show incidence trends for cancer of different sites over time or between population subdivisions. It can provide data to assess the effects of different types of treatments over time and to evaluate the effects of early detection programs, such as mammography or colorectal screening. The National Cancer Registrar's Association and Kendall Hunt Publishing proudly introduce Cancer Registry Management: Principles and Practice. Perfect as a resource for the CTR Exam and as a resource for NCRA-Accredited programs, Cancer Registry Management: Principles and Practice combines both the Cancer Registry Management: Principles and Practice with Central Cancer Registries: Design, Management and Use.
