SA-PCCOC has published in all areas of prostate cancer interest including: urology, medical oncology, radiation oncology, epidemiology and physiotherapy.
Since 1998 the collaboration has published and presented over 180 times and received over 1,000 citations (Google Scholar). 40% of this activity has occurred in the last 5 years. In 2015 we presented at 24 conferences and symposia, of which 14 were national or international meetings. In 2015 we were active in 26 research projects.
The number of patients we collect each year has increased. In 2015 we passed the 10,000 mark for the number patients included in the database. At the beginning of the year we were collecting 74% of all new prostate cancer diagnoses in this state, and at the end of the year 91%, which will allow us to claim the mantel of a population based registry, a truly remarkable achievement and a world first for a non-mandated cancer registry.
