Evolucion de registros sobre cancer basado en poblaciones

The evolution of the population-based cancer registry – DM Parkin – Nat Rev Cancer, 2006 – Aug;6(8):603-12. Review.

Abstract | The idea of recording information on all cancer cases in defined communities dates
from the first half of the twentieth century, and there has been a steady growth in the number
of such cancer registries since. Originally, they were concerned primarily with describing
cancer patterns and trends. Later, many were able to follow up the registered patients and
calculate survival. In the last 20 years the role of registries has expanded further to embrace
the planning and evaluation of cancer control activities, and the care of individual cancer
patients. This Review looks at the current status of cancer registration practice and use from
an international perspective, mindful that the registration of cancer has expanded into a
global activity.
