AFCRN Database

Standard Procedure Manual

After much hard work from our authors and advisers, here is the invaluable 2nd version of the Standard Procedure Manual for Population-Based Cancer Registry in sub Saharan Africa.

You can download it in both PDF and Word here.The idea is that it can be customised for individual registries (some parts, marked in blue, must be changed, as they are just examples).

La Base de Données AFCRN

L'un des objectifs du Réseau des Registres de Cancer Africain ( AFCRN ) est d'améliorer les connaissances de l'impact du cancer sur le continent africain . Ses membres ont recueilli des données précieuses sur les nouveaux cas de cancer diagnostiqués dans leur zone de couverture. Afin de faciliter les études de recherche sur la base de ces données, les membres du réseau AFCRN ont établi une base de données centrale, comprenant des enregistrements anonymes de cas enregistrés, ainsi que des informations sur la taille et la composition de la population à risque . Les variables disponibles pour chaque cas sont décrites ci-dessous. La base de données est organisée par le Centre international de Recherche sur le Cancer (CIRC), aux termes d'un accord par lequel  la confidentialité des données sera maintenue.

One of the goals of the the African Cancer Registry Network (AFCRN) is improve knowledge of the burden of cancer on the African continent. Its members have collected valuable data on new cases of cancer diagnosed in their area of coverage. In order to facilitate research studies based on these data, the AFCRN members have established a central DATABASE, comprising anonymous records of cases registered, as well as information on the size and composition of the population at risk.  The variables available for each case are described below. The database is being hosted by the  International Agency for Research on Cancer ( IARC), under the terms of an agreement by which the confidentiality of data will be maintained.

Essential TNM

The Minimum dataset of AFCRN , and the model registry form, suggest the use of "Essential TNM" from TNM 8th Edition [Edited by James D. Brierley et al] for recording the Extent of disease - for those sites for which the registry has decided to record this variable.
