The Victorian Lung Cancer Registry (VLCR)

The Victorian Lung Cancer Registry (VLCR) pilot study was established in 2010 in conjunction with the Monash Comprehensive Cancer Consortium. A successful grant application to the Victorian Cancer Agency provided funding to complete a 3 year pilot program, recruiting all newly diagnosed lung cancer cases from participating sites in Victoria. The VLCR is now operating as an ongoing Registry, housed at the Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine, Monash University. 

Information from the Registry will be used to describe lung patient care pathways and outcomes. Quality indicators derived from these descriptions will be used to drive quality of care for clinicians, institutions and health services in Victoria. The development of a lung cancer quality registry has the further potential to provide a ‘data spine’ to facilitate collaborative multidisciplinary lung cancer researchers across Victoria.
