Eligibility for inclusion
Men are eligible to be included on the Registry if they have had a notification forwarded to the Victorian Cancer Registry.
By requirement of the Cancer Act, 1958, all Victorian Hospitals, Pathology Services, and Prescribed Registers are required to report cancer diagnosis to the Victorian Cancer Registry. Information sent to the Victorian Cancer Registry is also retained by hospitals. Each participating hospital sends an Patient Information and Consent Form, and letter of invitation, to men who have met criteria for prostate cancer notification, inviting participation in the Prostate Cancer Outcomes Registry – Victoria.
Only clinicians working within contributing hospitals are eligible to enrol in the Registry.
