Data we collect

The Registry collects a wide range of information from many different sources.
For every new cancer we register the following:

Patient Details

  • Name
  • Address
  • Gender
  • Date of birth
  • Occupation

Cancer Details

  • Type and location of the cancer
  • How advanced the cancer is
  • The treatment received by the patient

Most of this information is extracted from hospital medical records by our Cancer Data Registrars who are nurses based in hospitals throughout Ireland. In cases where death occurs, we obtain the date and cause of death from the death certificate.

A brief description of how cancer information is registered can be viewed here. A list of the principal data items available can be seen on this page.
