This year is the 50th anniversary of the founding of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). They hold an annual conference that Macmillan’s Evidence department have attended for the past few years. For 2016, we presented posters on the following work:
- Examining methods to visualise the cancer population using cartograms: 20-year cancer prevalence in the UK [PDF].
- Exploring patterns of deprivation for people living with cancer: 20-year cancer prevalence in the UK [PDF].
- 20-year cancer prevalence in the UK by cancer type: exploring variations between short-term and long-term survivors in the cancer population [PDF].
- A new way of counting cancer prevalence to understand the prevalence of multiple primaries in the UK [PDF].
- Identifying progressive cancers in head and neck cancer patients using routine health datasets in England [PDF].
- Exploring the relationship between patient experience and outcomes; how well represented are the cancer population in the English Cancer Patient Experience Survey? [PDF]
- How many people are living with cancer in the UK at the end of 2013? [PDF].
