Cancer Registry and Clinical Data Management

The Cancer Registry and Clinical Data Management (CRCDM) section is one of the most well-established, hospital-based registries in Pakistan. The Registry, formed in 1994, is a member of the International Association of Cancer Registries in Lyon, France. THE CDCRM staff is responsible for coding and generating summaries on cancer and non-cancer cases. Since January 2004, the Registry has been coding cancer cases using the International Classification of Diseases for Oncology, Third Edition (ICD-O-3). The CRCDM generates summaries using the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM). Each year, the CRCDM provides extensive cancer statistics by gender, age group, demographic area, stage, grade, and morphology.

The section is actively involved in setting-up a citywide, population-based, cancer registry, The Punjab Cancer Registry, which is registered under the Societies’ Act of Pakistan (XXI of 1860). The Punjab Cancer Registry will assist in determining the population-level statistics in the area of Lahore district. Aside from this project, the CRCDM staff prepares and updates strategies on breast health awareness, especially noting the number of breast cancer cases at the Hospital, and collaborates with other professionals and organisations at both the national and international level to deal with this issue. The CRCDM staff also assists students, researchers, and clinicians in conducting research studies at the SKMCH&RC. These studies have been conducted on specific types of cancer as well, the results of which can be viewed on PubMed, a web-based database of medical research publications.
