Annual Report 2010

2010 has been a particularly successful year with major developments in our governance, database operations, staffing and research. With new directions and capacities provided by the steering committee, we are particularly excited by potential future directions for the project.

Annual Report 2011

2011/12 has been an exciting year for the database with new opportunities opening up and a consolidation of existing achievements.

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.
