Sweden to update national cancer registers

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Sweden is to establish two new population-based cancer registers to monitor and control the quality of both melanoma and cervical cancer diagnosis and treatment. The national board of health and welfare (SOS) says that the structure and organisation of existing care programme registers for malignant melanomas as well as the register co-ordinating group will be employed to create the new national prospective register. Particular emphasis will be placed on the thickness of the tumour, as patients with thicker tumours are more likely to relapse, claims SOS. The information gained will be distributed nationally as this will provide more equality in diagnostic and therapeutic methods, it adds.
