Program type: 
Program description: 

Course dates: 5 days in June.

A highly experienced faculty will present a stimulating and intensive one-week course on the principles, methods and applications of cancer survival with population-based data, using lectures, computer-based analytic exercises with real data, review sessions and a session for participants to present their own work or ideas.

Net survival will be the main approach to analysis, with discussion of recent methodological developments (e.g. net survival) and results. The methodological concepts of cancer survival will be illustrated by public health and policy applications throughout the week. Results from recent survival studies will be presented and their interpretation discussed.

This short course is for epidemiologists, statisticians, physicians and oncologists, public health specialists and others with a direct interest in applied cancer survival analysis, and particularly those working in a cancer registry.
