PHE Biobank Link Webinar: linking cancer registries to Biobanks in England
August 1, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Biobank Link Webinar
In this webinar, participants will learn about Public Health England’s (PHE) Biobank Link. Dominic Dwyer, Data Access Officer, will present on how biobanks can link their samples to cancer registries through Biobank Link for easier access to data about diagnoses and treatment information.
Dominic will first cover what information is needed from biobanks to link to the registries and then what information can be returned from registries to biobanks. Finally, the webinar will cover how the UKCRC Tissue Directory with work with PHE to avoid duplication.
Please email the UKCRC Tissue Directory and Coordination Centre to register for this webinar.
This webinar is aimed at those working in biobanks and is most relevant to England.
In 2016 the National Cancer Intelligence Network (NCIN) and National Disease Registration (NDR) merged to form the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service (NCRAS). NCRAS works to drive improvements in standards of cancer care and clinical outcomes by improving and using the information collected about cancer patients for analysis, publication and research.
