  Collaboration on Cancer Reporting
  Goes Global with the ICCR


Posted May 8, 2012

Currently, different countries are using local standards for collecting cancer information, rather than an international standard for evidence-based cancer data representation. The International Collaboration on Cancer Reporting (ICCR) is a new joint effort between the leading pathology organizations in the US (CAP), Canada (Canadian Association of Pathologists/Association canadienne des pathologists, or CAP), the United Kingdom (the Royal College of Pathologists, or RCP) and Australasia (the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia, or RCPA) to pilot a feasibility study for internationally standardized cancer pathology reporting. The ICCR is working on initial data templates for endometrium, prostate, lung, and melanoma which it is planning to submit for international review. The ICCR recently had successful discussions with the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) with the goal of developing a truly international process and secretariat. Standardized data elements from the ICCR may be incorporated into future eCC releases.
