Victorian Lung Cancer Registry
The Victorian Lung Cancer Registry (VLCR) aims to record all newly diagnosed lung cancer cases in participating sites in Victoria. Information from the registry will be used to monitor care provided, including treatment, complications and both short and longer term outcomes of care. This information will be used to help identify trends and whether gaps exist in service provision.
The main aim of the VLCR is to monitor the patterns of care and outcomes of individuals diagnosed with lung cancer in contributing Victorian public and private hospitals. The Registry provides population-based information on the patterns of care for people diagnosed with lung cancer and assesses whether there is variation in health-related quality of life and survival following diagnosis of lung cancer across Victoria.
Clinical registries such as the VLCR are valued tools for quality improvement. They improve care by arming doctors and teams treating lung cancer with information about how their outcomes benchmark with standards and other clinical outcomes, both locally and (sometimes) internationally. Registries identify variation in patterns and processes of care and outcomes and factors that influence adverse outcomes. Registries also provide a valuable tool to track how innovations in the science translate into longer term outcomes in the ‘real world’.
