Annual Report 2012

2012 signalled the beginning of a new era for SA-PCCOC with changes to our team, our data infrastructure and our partnerships. Despite some challenges, SA-PCCOC is well placed to move towards our intended goal of establishing a population based prostate cancer registry for South Australia.

Annual Report 2013

During 2013, 862 patients were added to the SA-PCCOC database. This represents 53% ascertainment of all prostate cancer cases diagnosed within South Australia, using projections provided by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare as a denominator.

Annual Report 2014

During 2014, 915 patients were added to the SA-PCCOC database. This represents 51% ascertainment of all prostate cancer cases diagnosed within South Australia, using data from the South Australia Cancer register (2009) as a denominator.

Annual Report 2015

During 2015, 1,302 patients were added to the SA-PCCOC database. This represents
91% ascertainment of all prostate cancer cases diagnosed within South Australia, using data
projections from the South Australia Cancer register as a denominator.

Annual Report 2016

It is almost a truism to say, that for any organisation, each year throws up new challenges, opportunities and incremental growth. For SA-PCCOC, 2016 (our 18th year of operation) has been no exception. During this year we have captured more than 85% of all men with a new diagnosis of prostate cancer in the state and achieved “population status” of our registry. We believe this to be not only an Australian first, but also a world first, for a non-government funded, independent cancer registry.
