Head: Dott. Fabio Falcini

The Operating Unit has the task of making available data on incidence, mortality, survival and tumour prevalence in Romagna to the organs of the Regional Health Service and to the scientific community in order to facilitate the research, prevention and care planning in the oncology field, of contributing to the planning of new initiatives for data recording and evaluation, of promoting the standardization of recording techniques and a regional network of cancers. The Cancer Registry records all new cases of cancer that occur in the population, distinguishing them by place of occurrence and morphological characteristics, following the trend of their rates of incidence and mortality (for malignant tumours) over time. The collection of data in a Cancer Registry helps identify areas with an high risk for cancer, suggest hypothesis about the causes of the disease, evaluate the effectiveness of primary and secondary prevention interventions (screening programs), thus support a cancer surveillance activity in the population considered.
