We now know that cancer registry follow-up data is used by many organizations. Follow-up data is generated in Cancer Registries or Specialty Registries, requested by Central Registries, and uploaded to the National Cancer Database. The follow-up data is then dispersed as requested by researchers, physicians, and other entities worldwide.
Do some research. Using the UC Library system or available websites, locate a statistical report or paper created or amended by cancer registry follow-up data. Write a 3-5 page paper explaining how the registry follow-up data was used to create the report or paper. Then, trace the tumor registry follow-up data, utilized in the report, back to a tumor registry or specialty registry. Give some background information about the registries involved in providing the follow-up data along the way. You may need to give background information on a Hospital Registry, Specialty Registry, and/or a Population-Based Registry, as part of your research report.The post follow up data registry
