Projecten

Belgian Cancer Registry (BCR) verzamelt en verwerkt, naast gegevens over kankerdiagnose en -screening, bijkomende gegevens in het kader van registratieprojecten. Deze projecten worden meestal uitgevoerd in samenwerking met het Rijksinstituut voor Ziekte- en Invaliditeitsverzekering (RIZIV) en laten fundamenteel onderzoek toe naar enerzijds de kwaliteit, de uitkomsten en de neveneffecten van kankerbehandelingen en anderzijds de levenskwaliteit en de overleving van patiënten na kanker. De onderzoeksresultaten van deze registratieprojecten helpen om de Belgische kankerzorg op te volgen en te optimaliseren.
