What drives us

We keep a record of people with cancer in Victoria.

Under the legislation Improving Cancer Outcomes Act 2014, it is mandatory for health services, including pathology laboratories in Victoria to report to us all cancer diagnoses. On receiving the cancer information, we collate the data by person and tumour streams ensuring information is up-to-date and complete. This information is used to understand how cancer is distributed and changed over time. The Victorian Cancer Registry provides a foundation for measuring and improving cancer outcomes.

We get our cancer data from 254 hospitals, 11 radiotherapy centres, 7 interstate registries, screening registries, 26 pathology laboratories and death registries.

We share our data with local, national and international researchers, collaborators and policy makers.

We are continously adopting modern technology to improve data quality and the breadth & depth of our data.
