Cancer Registry Division

 

Registry is tasked with ensuring good quality cancer data available to inform and drive improvements in standards of cancer care and clinical outcomes, as well as enabling the use of cancer information to support audit and research programmes.

At both the national and community level, cancer registration schemes are central   to research into the nature and causation of cancer, to the planning of health service ,resources and cancer control programmes, and to the assessment of their efficacy .Cancer registration is thus part of  a modern health information system An  accurate  picture  of  the cancer  burden depends  on  the  creation of  a population-based cancer registry.

Registry can provide an accurate estimate of the future number of cancer patients ,to plan the best possible allocation of finite resources to the core elements of cancer control: primary prevention, screening and early diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and palliative care. Intrinsic in translating cancer predictions to decision-making processes is an understanding of the forces that might affect the future estimates in all the Departments ,specially Community Oncology  and Cancer palliative Medicine. In collaboration with National Cancer Registry Programme of Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), a Hospital Based Cancer Registry (HBCR) was initiated on November 2010 and started functioning from February 2011 onwards.
