Should rare cancers be treated in centres
of expertise?
Analysis of the association between hospital case
volumes and (stage-adjusted) survival
A selection of cancer registries will send information on the
hospital of diagnosis/treatment of cancer cases, on the stage
and diagnostic investigation
•
Participant national registries: Finland, Ireland, Bulgaria,
Slovenia and Netherlands. Other registries can join
•

of expertise for rare cancers
Consensus meeting
High resolution study for a subgroup of rare
cancers in collaboration with selected cancer
registries

Centres of expertise: examples of
criteria

Diagnosis: diagnostic investigation, stage at time of
diagnosis, second opinion on pathology report..

Treatment: according to guideline, dedicated trials,
free margins after surgery
