An essential component of Children’s Cancer Program is the database maintained by the Cancer Registry. Established in 1978, the Registry is responsible for the collection, management and analysis of data on cancer patients. The Registry encourages lifetime medical follow-up of Children’s cancer patients to provide information for epidemiological, clinical and research studies, as well as for educational purposes.

Weekly oncology Tumor Board Conferences ensure all Children’s cancer patients benefit from the expertise of pediatric medical professionals from radiology, pathology, surgery, neurosurgery, orthopaedic surgery, radiation oncology, pediatric oncology, nursing and social work. These weekly conferences provide an opportunity for a comprehensive, multidisciplinary review of each child’s diagnosis, disease staging and case management, and ensure that each child receives comprehensive, high quality care.
